The leadership of StarTran, Inc., who employs 2/3 of our bus operators, arrived at Capital Metro HQ about 3:30 a.m. this morning to make bus operators’ day.
We proclaimed today Bus Operator Appreciation Day, and new CEO Linda S. Watson joined StarTran management in the wee hours to serve breakfast and personally thank our professional bus operators for their work that results in thousands of people in our community getting to work, to school, and to anywhere else they want to go, every day.
THANK YOU, CAPMETRO BUS OPERATORS!!
Why did we select today? First, it’s the last weekday of the summer service period. On Sunday, our fall service schedule begins, and there will likely be a different operator driving your regular bus. (Our service changes are also an opportunity for operators to switch route assignments.)
Second, it’s the first day of a three-month customer service initiative to Make Their (your) Day. If those whose jobs support the work of bus operators strive to make bus operators’ days–by thanking them and acknowledging their successes, by making sure they have the information they need, by providing good equipment and training, etc.–then bus operators will be better prepared each day to make your day.
Did you have a friendly bus driver today? Did you thank him/her? How can we make your day?
