As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to a close on October 15 (it’s run from September 15 – October 15), we want to recognize just some of the contributions made by Hispanic and LatinX Americans to the transportation industry. Be sure to check out the included video.
During 2021, we have gone the extra mile to recognize our drivers (Transit Driver Appreciation Day) and our maintenance staff (Mechanics Day) – now, it’s time to celebrate our passengers. We have decided to designate the week of September 27 as Transdev Passenger Appreciation Week. Check out our video we included in the story.
Thanks to some amazing participation by our corporate team, our first Stuff-a-Bus “Back to School” event in Lombard was a great success. Our corporate office was able to offer close to $500 in much needed supplies to District45 in neighboring Villa Park, IL.
The greater Transdev family stepped up again, as it has so many times in the past – this time to help out after the wrath of Hurricane Ida. Our JTran operations in Jackson, Mississippi purchased non-perishable items to donate to their neighboring Louisiana Jefferson Parish facility in need.
National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 to October 15. It’s designated as a time to recognize the contributions and influence of Latinx and Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the U.S.
As we honor the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we have included a poignant quote to share.

Enjoy a healthy and safe Labor Day weekend with family and friends. For some, Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer and is celebrated with parades and BBQs. It is also designated as a holiday (1st Monday in September) that pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers.
Recently, several of our teams participated in the memorial held in San Jose in remembrance of the victims of the May 26 shooting at Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA). There was a bus parade in San Jose, followed by a ceremony at the SAP Center. Our area clients, Sonoma, LAVTA, County Connection, SolTrans and Napa, all sent buses to participate in the parade.
July 26, 2021 marks 31 years since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush. We are proud to support our passengers with disabilities and offer them the freedom to move through safe and reliable transit solutions.
