"We all know the familiar faces we see each day, whether it’s the person who works at the station or the driver who makes sure we get to our destination.  They become part of our daily lives and it’s nice to show we know them and appreciate the great work they do,” said Leanne Redden, RTA Executive Director.

The RTA has created personalized “Thank You” cards that are available on its website that can be given to transit employees.  These “transit thank you notes” are a simple and easy way to offer appreciation to the transit employees we see every day.  Riders can also help spread the word about this special day by posting to their social media pages using the hashtag #LoveTransit.
