It's thank-a-bus driver day!

March 13, 2015

Say thanks!

On March 18, join in thanking over 100 Strathcona County Transit bus drivers as part of the International Transit Driver Appreciation Day.

Consider this - for hours on end, Strathcona County Transit drivers manage to keep a schedule, check fares, give directions, announce stops, remember stop requests and more, all while safely maneuvering an extra-large vehicle through unpredictable traffic, adverse weather conditions and some really tight spaces.

On March 18, bus riders are invited to give a card to a bus driver, or drop a card off at the bus station. Cards are available at the Bethel Transit Terminal and Ordze Transit Centre, and online. For more information, call Transit at 780-464-7433.

Set in the centre of Alberta’s energy and agricultural heartland, Strathcona County is a thriving, successful and vibrant community of more than 92,000 residents. Strathcona County is made up of the urban area of Sherwood Park and a large adjacent rural area of farms, acreages and smaller hamlets. It is home to 75 per cent of refining in Western Canada. With a focus on economic, governance, social, cultural and environmental sustainability, Strathcona County is committed to balancing the unique needs of its diverse community.
