Bus Driver Appreciation Week

Monday, February 22, 2010

King County Council says “Thank You” to Metro’s 2,700 transit operators. Bob Ferguson, representing Shoreline and Lake Forest Park, is second from left.

They are the men and women who greet you daily, take you where you need to go, point you in the right direction if you’re not sure where you need to be, and act as tour guide and entertainment director for the over 100 million passengers who ride with them every year. They are the 2,700 transit operators for Metro Transit and the Metropolitan King County Council today showed their appreciation for the work performed by these county employees by proclaiming the week of February 22 Bus Driver Appreciation Week.
“Our transit operators are the lifeblood of our public transportation system, providing mobility for those who are transit dependent and an environmentally-friendly alternative to congestion for commuters,” said Councilmember Larry Phillips, sponsor of the proclamation. “I am personally very grateful for what they do, and if you are too, I hope you’ll take a little extra time this week to say ‘thanks’ to your bus driver.”
