Dear TriMet Bus Drivers and MAX & Streetcar Train Operators,

In honor of Transit Driver Appreciation Day, we’d like to say thanks.

Thank you for braving heavy rain, snow and ice to help us get home safely.

Thank you for yielding to people biking and sharing the road so graciously.

Thank you for always stopping for people crossing at marked and unmarked crosswalks.

Thank you for helping Portlanders get to their destinations day in and day out.

Thank you for being a Vision Zero partner and making safety your top priority.

We are so grateful you are here to help keep our city moving!

All the best,
