For hours on end, IndyGo drivers work hard to keep a schedule, check fares, give directions, announce stops and more, all while safely maneuvering an extra-large vehicle through unpredictable traffic, adverse weather conditions and some really tight spaces!
The fact is, our drivers don’t have an easy job, they just make it look that way.
On March 18, Transit Driver Appreciate Day, we’ll be honoring two exemplary drivers, Efrain Amaya and Stehpen Thein, at the Indianapolis ROSE awards. Presented by Visit Indy, the ROSE Awards honors individuals who make Indianapolis an attractive place to live, work and play.
On this special day, next Wednesday, join us in celebrating the contributions of all our hard working bus drivers. You could do something as simple as smile when you board the bus, say “thank you” when you leave or print out a custom transit thank you card for your favorite driver. You could even get your driver recognized by IndyGo’s transportation department by submitting an official commendation for a job well done. (You can do that any time of year by the way!)
We hope you’ll take this opportunity to make a transit driver’s day a little easier by giving them appreciation for getting you to work, home, school or wherever your travels take you!
