It takes a lot of hard work to keep a transit system running smoothly, day after day. Members of the team all contribute in their unique role, from office staff, reservationists, and dispatchers to bus drivers, supervisors, utility workers, and management. This month, one employee receives special recognition.
“Eric is a helpful, supportive team player. He is always doing his part to make sure drivers have what they need to be successful during their workday. Eric has strong leadership qualities but remains humble. He is instrumental in our safety training program and is a valuable member of our team.”
— Ginger Doll, General Manager
