Today’s the day to thank our city’s transit drivers, the ones who keep us moving.
Taking place in multiple cities across North America, Transit Driver Appreciation Day celebrates all the hard-working bus drivers and train operators.
Show some love and express your appreciation in person or on Twitter and Instagram, tagging @CalgaryTransit with the hashtag #thanksCT. You can also fill out this form and tell Calgary Transit about an operator who goes the extra mile to make your day.
Calgary’s bus and CTrain drivers have a great track record of making life better for locals. Most recently, they’ve returned a lost boy to his family, helped a woman in distress, assisted a man in a wheelchair, and gone the extra mile to make sure people get home safely.

We’re celebrating Thank Your Driver Day on Friday, March 18! Why? Because on that day in 1662, bus service began in Paris with horse-drawn carriages. Do you have a favourite transit operator? If so, let us know why he or she rocks! In this photo: Operators Ziggy and Beth with Doug Morgan, Director of Calgary Transit. #thanksCT #tdad #calgarytransit #yyc #yyctransit #busdriver
