"We all know the familiar faces we see each day of the men who work tirelessly to ensure our safe and smooth commute,” said Leanne Redden, RTA Executive Director. “Too often we are so involved in our busy lives that we forget to simply thank them for their services. So on Transit Employee Appreciation Day, let’s take the time to show them how much we appreciate them.”

Riders can help spread the word about this special day by posting on their social media pages using the hashtag #LoveTransit.  Official commendations are also welcomed and can be submitted to the CTA, Metra and Pace.
