This week, our TAPS operation started providing free rides to people who wanted to get their Covid-19 vaccinations. Providing these free rides is just one more way we can give back to our passengers and our community and show we care.
Recently, Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA) was proud to partner with the City of Lancaster, City of Palmdale, Antelope Valley Chevrolet, and T-Mobile for the area’s "Spring Food Distribution" event.
When we care about the communities we serve, great things can happen. Under a partnership between the city of Covina, Albertsons and our client Foothill Transit, Foothill Transit’s new transit center has been transformed into a vaccination center, serving those who are vaccine eligible in the local community.
As Women’s History Month comes to a close, we chose to highlight Nuria Fernandez as our third and final exceptional women whose made (and continues to make) a contribution to the transportation industry.
Thanks to our operations who dared to go above and beyond to make Transit Driver Appreciation Day a success. Sharing small gifts and gestures of appreciation or a simple thank you go a long way in showing our team members we care.
During Women’s History Month in March, we continue to highlight exceptional women and their contributions to the transportation industry. Carmen Turner is the third of our four features. She made history in 1983 as the first Black woman to lead a major transit agency when she became General Manager of WMATA.
During Women’s History Month in March, we continue to highlight exceptional women and their contributions to the transportation industry. Elizabeth Duff is the second our feature as the first Black woman employed as a bus driver in Nashville, TN.
Daylight Saving Time starts Sunday, March 14. Don’t forget to “spring ahead” and move your clocks forward one hour. Enjoy the extra hour of sunshine at the end of your day.
On the heels of International Women’s day, here’s a feel-good story that truly demonstrates the power of caring and having a “never give up” attitude. Best part of the story – the mom featured here – Juretha Jones – has been working at our Phoenix operation since 2018. It’s heartwarming to hear their story and know that Transdev has played a role in making a difference in their lives.
We always say that giving back to the communities we serve is part of who we are. But, we rarely get to see the effect our community outreach efforts truly have on our communities. Check out this thank you video sent to our Phoenix operations from some pretty grateful recipients.
