KATS celebrates Driver Appreciation Week
The Kingsport Area Transit Service will celebrate Transit Driver Appreciation Day the entire week of March 13-17.
KATS drivers do it all every day from conducting pre-trip inspections, to driving passengers safely to their destinations, to answering trip planning questions from riders. And they do so while safely maneuvering an extra-large, heavy vehicle through traffic, around tight corners and through all sorts of weather.
One such driver we would like to recognize and thank is Sandra Olinger, who has driven 25 years for the City of Kingsport, 22 of which were for KATS.
“We are truly appreciative of Sandra for her service and dedication to excellence,” said Chris Campbell, public transportation manager for the City of Kingsport.
The importance of safety, customer service, skill and attention to detail are demonstrated daily by each of our drivers. Without them, KATS could not exist. As such, our drivers deserve a heartfelt thanks.
Join us in celebrating our hard-working bus drivers by expressing your gratitude and support to them. And be sure to give them a ‘Thanks!’ during the week of March 13-17.
