Tomorrow is International Bus Driver Appreciation Day. Whether you only commute by bus, or run all your everyday errands on transit, we encourage you to show your appreciation through any way you can (try to keep it in moderation; drivers are more inclined to accept sealed food containers than a cookie produced out of your pocket). Even though it may be “Bus” Driver Appreciation Day, it certainly doesn’t hurt to say a quick thanks to train or streetcar operators if you manage to catch of glimpse of them (as long as you’re not disrupting them in the cab).
Last February already saw a Bus Driver Appreciation Week, but we know it’s never enough for what many drivers put up with. For someone who doesn’t witness enough riders thanking their drivers when exiting out the front, here’s a big thanks to all our driver readers and their coworkers.
