John McCarthy, Conductor, Metra Rock Island Line, Transit Employee Appreciation Day, 2016
This Friday, March 17 and Saturday, March 18 are Transit Employee Appreciation Days! We are encouraging riders to celebrate (and appreciate) the contributions of the hard-working transit employees at Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), Metra and Pace.
Many of us know the familiar faces we see each day, whether it’s the man or woman who works at the station or the driver who makes sure we get to our destination. They are part of our daily commute and it’s nice to show we know them and appreciate the work they do.
The RTA has created personalized “Thank You” cards that are available on our 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 #LoveTransit.
And, of course, thank you to our riders who make our system great each and every day!
