Ashcroft and Clinton invite riders to say thanks to their transit driver

March 18 is Transit Driver Appreciation Day

On March 18, communities from all around the province—including Ashcroft and Clinton—will be joining BC Transit to help celebrate the day by handing out “Thank You” cards to customers to share with their transit drivers. Other participating communities include Clearwater, Peachland, Pemberton, Vernon, Victoria, and Whistler.

Transit customers are encouraged to hand out a card and say a little extra “thank you” to their bus drivers on March 18. On that day, transit systems across North America will join together to celebrate Transit Driver Appreciation Day, and BC Transit is celebrating by saluting these reliable and extraordinary individuals who safely get people where they need to be.

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of the BC Transit drivers throughout the province who help people get around their communities safely,” says Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. “Whether going to school or work, or visiting friends or family, our bus drivers play an important role in our daily lives. I encourage everyone riding the bus on March 18 to let their driver know they appreciate them.”

Bus riders wishing to make Transit Driver Appreciation Day more special for their favourite operators can use the hashtag #TDAD on social media. Customers can also simply thank their transit driver whenever they are exiting the bus.
