Residents of Redlands have an opportunity to say ‘Thanks’ to their local bus or school-bus driver as part of the State Government’s Driver of the Year campaign.
Transdev, who operates more than 4,000 school and urban bus services per week between Redlands and Brisbane CBD, is encouraging residents to get behind the campaign and nominate their local driver.
Transdev Chief Officer for Bus Operations, Nikki Allder, said nominating a driver was a good way to acknowledge the valuable work that they do.
“We have a passionate team of Journey Makers who are committed to providing customers with a safe, reliable and friendly service,” Ms Allder said.
“Many drivers go above and beyond to look after and deliver a great service for customers and these awards are an opportunity for the community to recognise and thank them for their efforts.”
Now in their second year, the Awards have been developed to highlight drivers who have provided excellence customer service. Transdev Journey Makers are eligible for both the ‘South East Queensland’ and ‘School Driver’ categories.
“We are proud to to be one the largest employers in the Redlands, with our Journey Makers helping to transport more than 2.6 million residents each year through our urban, school and charter services,” Ms Allder added.
Transdev operates the route 240, 242, 243, 250/N250, 251, 252, 253, 254, 255, 258, 260, 261, 262, 263, 264, 265, 266, 267, 270, 272, 273, 274, 275, 276, 277, 279, 280, 281, 282 and 299 bus services on behalf of TransLink.
