Fraser Valley – On Monday March 18, say a little extra “thank you” to your bus drivers as transit systems across North America join together to celebrate Transit Driver Appreciation Day. BC Transit is celebrating by saluting some of the most reliable and extraordinary individuals who get people where they need to be — safely.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of the BC Transit drivers throughout the province who help people get around their communities safely,” said Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. “Whether going to school or work, or visiting friends or family, our bus drivers play an important role in our daily lives. I encourage everyone riding the bus today to let their driver know they appreciate them.”
In honour of our transit drivers across British Columbia, BC Transit has collected stories from communities throughout the province and produced a series of short videos showcasing some of the dedicated and hard-working people behind the wheel.
Bus riders wishing to make Transit Driver Appreciation Day more special for their favourite operators can use the hashtag ‘#TDAD’ on social media. Customers can also simply thank their transit driver whenever they are exiting the bus.
