FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TRANSIT DRIVER APPRECIATION DAY IS MARCH 18TH
March 14, 2023, Marysville, CA – The first "Five Penny Coaches" local fixed route bus service was established in Paris on March 18,1662. March is now Transit Driver Appreciation Month and March 18th is Transit Driver Appreciation Day around the world as public transit vehicle operators are recognized for the essential services that they provide.
To mark the occasion, Yuba-Sutter Transit will be providing a small gift this week to each employee no matter the position in appreciation for all they do each day for our passengers and the communities that we serve. And the men and women who operate Yuba-Sutter Transit's buses do it all - pre-trip safety inspections, boarding passengers, collecting fares, answering trip planning questions, watching out for the safety of all, returning lost items, and so much more - all while safely maneuvering a large and heavy vehicle through traffic, tight corners, and road detours during all sorts of weather.
Our drivers are dedicated to what they do, and they deserve our heartfelt thanks, so we invite you to join us in celebrating these essential workers on Transit Driver Appreciation Day, Saturday, March 18th and all throughout the year.
