Community & Employee Engagement 

Caring for our community is what we do at Transdev. It’s what sets us apart from others.

Community outreach is a critical component of how we do business at our locations. Giving back to the communities we serve is great way to demonstrate that we care, help us integrate into the community and show we are an active leader in the area. Transdev’s employee engagement and recognition activities also tie directly into our community outreach efforts and provide us with opportunities to celebrate our employees.

It’s about Living our Purpose by serving the common good.

Our Stuff-A-Bus program is our signature community outreach program. It’s great example of our community outreach commitment in action and can be organized any of time of year.

Community Outreach Efforts

 Story #1 – April 13, 2024

 On April 13, 2024, several companies, including Transdev, brought their vehicles to Shawnee Mission Park’s Theater in the Park to show kids how work is done around the Kansas City Area.

The Trucks & Big Rigs for Kids event allowed kids to crawl, climb and even sit in the driver’s seat of various trucks, tractors, construction, and city vehicles. Everyone learned from the real life operators of these vehicles how they complete the work they do with their vehicles. Everything from buses, fire trucks, moving trucks, dog grooming trucks, and construction trucks were there for children of all ages to get up close and personal.

Transdev-operated Johnson County Transit bus, from Olathe, KS, was there to get in on the action.

The event was free to the public, with donations accepted at the gate designated to the Johnson County Parks and Recreation Department (JCPRD) Special Olympics and Special Population Department.


Story #2 – May 14, 2024

Our Meet the Managers program is designed to proactively listen to customer input and demonstrate our dedication to incorporating their feedback. It’s truly about showing we care. It’s another type of community outreach that Transdev is proud to initiate.

Recently, our Hudson Link location in New York state hosted a great Meet the Managers event during the morning peak hours at one of their busiest bus stops. Customers were able to talk directly to Assistant General Manager Marjorie Chin and General Manager Michael Blondin about any commuting concerns they may have and what they love about the service.

 Listening to our passengers at Meet the Manager sessions is an important way for us to hear what could potentially be improved at our operations. It creates a great opportunity to build relationships with our passengers, to listen to feedback and to use it for our continuous improvement.

When our customers leave a Meet the Managers event, they know we were LISTENING!


Story #3 – May 10, 2024

Recently, our team partnered with our Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) client to provide transportation to the wheelchair athletes competing in the U.S. Wheelchair Rugby national championships in Tampa, FL.

What a great opportunity to serve the common good, support our community and play a role in providing mobility solutions to allow these athletes to go after their goals.


Story #4 – September 2023

 As part of our commitment to community involvement, Transdev had the privilege to represent our Charm City Circulator client out of Baltimore at one of the city’s premier outdoor events called Artscape.

Artscape bills itself as America’s largest free outdoor arts festival. It’s held in the cultural heart of Baltimore since 1982. The festival was designed as an Arts Fair that marketed Baltimore as a cultural hub, generated local community support for the arts, and stimulated economic development. Transdev is proud to be part of this thriving community and this iconic event.


Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s (LVMPD) community Truck or Treat 2023 event

October 27, 2023

Transdev got into the scary fun Halloween spirit by participating in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s (LVMPD) community Truck or Treat 2023 event. The event welcomed more than 10,000 people from the Las Vegas Valley. We came to the event prepared to scare, have fun and support the important safety message the LVMPD was reinforcing. With safety as our top priority, tips like using marked crosswalks when crossing the street, putting electronic devices away when driving or walking, and taking the time to look for children at intersections were all messages Transdev could get behind. The community event proved extra special as Transdev’s Las Vegas Spooky Bus was a big hit and even won the first-place trophy for best decorations and most scary vehicle.
