Thank your driver day on Friday, March 17

Our transit operators don’t have an easy job – they just make it look that way. Every weekday they help more than half a million Calgarians get around the city.

We’re encouraging you to show your appreciation as we celebrate Thank Your Driver Day a day early on Friday, March 17. Thank Your Driver Day is your chance to share thanks for the work our 2,000-plus hard-working CTrain, bus, shuttle and Calgary Transit Access operators do 365 days a year.

Our operators help you get to school, work, appointments, and special events. They make life a little easier by keeping a schedule, offering directions, announcing stops and answering questions. And most importantly, they keep us safe by manoeuvring large vehicles through unpredictable traffic, tough weather conditions and by being the eyes and ears of the community.

Simply put, our operators are the best because they care about you.

Did you know?
Thank Your Driver Day is held in cities around the world on March 18 because on that day in 1662, bus service debuted in Paris with horse-drawn carriages.
