Celebrate Transit Driver Appreciation Day on March 18

Transit operators have to keep a schedule, give directions, announce stops, remember stop requests, all while safely maneuvering an extra-large vehicle through unpredictable traffic, adverse weather conditions and some really tight spaces. It’s not an easy job…but it is easy to show your appreciation for the hard-working men and women who keep LA moving.

Transit Driver Appreciation Day is taking place this year on Monday, March 18. We hope you’ll join the celebration by making an extra effort to thank your operator on that day, or by simply smiling and waving when you board the bus or train.

You can also share your appreciation with us via social media on InstagramTwitter. Let us know which operators have made your travels better!

  1. I feel bad for them. They are the ones dealing with the homeless and mentally unstable people

  2. Drivers have an insanely difficult/stressful job with little appreciation from the people they drive around. It would also be cool if Metro decided to pay them what they’re worth too. Top out at $24? Geez.
