Transit Driver Appreciation Day in Greene County will be Monday, March 18, 2019. National Transit Driver Appreciation Day is an opportunity to express sincere gratitude to all local public transit drivers for delivering the vital public service of safe, friendly, and reliable transportation to Greene County community members and visitors alike, and to celebrate the contributions of these hard-working transit drivers.
Transit Driver Appreciation Day was conceived in 2009 by a couple of grateful riders from Seattle. They chose March 18th to commemorate the first bus line in service, known as Five-Penny Coaches, started by Blaise Pascal in Paris in 1662.
Greene CATS operators drive their routes, helping riders with directions, assisting mobility challenged passengers with boarding/alighting and remembering flag stop requests – all while safely operating vehicles through tight roadways, unpredictable traffic and ever-changing road conditions. Greene CATS is grateful for their hard work and dedication to our passengers and to the community.
Riders can use the Greene CATS Public Transit main number at 937-708-8322 and choose option 7 to share compliments for Greene CATS drivers throughout the year or email the notes to [email protected]. Customers can also send a message on social media to share their stories: on Twitter use @greenecats or on Facebook find us at Greene CATS Public Transit (greenecats). The nationally recognized day will be documented on social media by transit agencies across the United States using the hashtag #tdad.
Please take a moment and join us in thanking our transit drivers on Monday, March 18, 2019, in celebrating Transit Driver Appreciation Day!
