Once again, we’ll be joining transit agencies across Canada in celebrating Transit Operator and Worker Appreciation Day on March 18. This is a day dedicated to honouring and appreciating each and every one of our transit workers.

Transit employees are united by the common goal of delivering the best service to customers no matter where they work — whether it’s in the shop floor, in the drivers’ seat, planning for the future, managing our Compass Card system, keeping customers safe, or staffing our stations, just to name a few.

Here at TransLink, we have a saying: Together all the way. It means that we are here to help our customers reach their destinations and get home again – safely, reliably, and affordably.

We invite you in joining us in giving thanks this Transit Operator and Worker Appreciation Day.

Show your appreciation

Let your local transit workers know how much you appreciate them:

  • Use the hashtag #ThanksTransit on social media. Make sure to mention @TransLink so everyone knows you’re giving kudos to a Metro Vancouver transit worker.
  • Call Customer Information at 604.953.3333 and leave a commendation for a transit worker.
  • Leave a comment below and tell us who you appreciate and why.
  • Have a specific story to share? email it to thebuzzer@translink.ca
