Bus operators are experts in multitasking. They have to stay on schedule, answer customer questions, announce stops, maneuver through traffic and tight spaces, all while safely driving a 40-foot bus. In 2016, bus operators transported nearly 4 million passengers to their destinations, including work, school, medical appointments and much more.
GCTD employs 130 highly-skilled bus operators. Some interesting facts include:
“Our GCTD bus operators are our ambassadors, our boots on the ground, and the heart of our agency. We are grateful for all of their hard work and helping to run our service safely and efficiently”, said GCTD General Manager, Steve Brown.
While GCTD encourages passengers to say thanks after every trip, we highly encourage all to take some time on Friday to show your appreciation to your bus operator. Whether it’s a friendly smile, a simple thank-you, or a social media post, make your appreciation official.
For those customers that want go that extra mile, you can say “thanks” with these downloadable pre-made cards to show you care. Customers can also express their appreciation by sharing their commendation for a specific bus operator on Facebook or Twitter using #TDAD and #thanksGO. Be sure to include as much detail about your operator as possible so that the message can be relayed.
