People in Transit
In this edition of our people in transit segment of Mass Transit TV, we have two Cincinnati Metro bus drivers who recently saved children from harm’s way while on their routes. Operators Ella Holloway and Dianne Wyly were presented with the CEO’s STAR Award at the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority Board meeting on March 19.
Remember, we want to hear more about the people who work in transit and tell their stories! If there’s someone in your agency you feel should be recognized for their hard work and dedication to their job or the community, send an email and share their story. joe.petrie@MassTransitmag.com
