With the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday approaching I wanted to take a moment to thank each of you for the contributions you make every day. You are a critical part of the service we deliver.
“Thank you” to the operators who serve our customers day in and day out; the supervisors, controllers and dispatchers that help keep the system moving; the schedule writers who work with limited service hours to provide schedules that work; the station agents who work hard every day to fill the work; and the maintenance personnel who keep buses, trains and non-revenue vehicles running smoothly - as well as keep our infrastructure in good working order and ready for our customers each day.
Looking back on this past year, I want to give special thanks to the MOW team who made sure our TVMs received the latest updates in record time, and to our Rail Equipment Maintenance team for putting their shoulders to the grindstone on preventative maintenance, additionally a big “thank you” to our bus operator training team for completing the bus operator certification program.
I am sure I may have missed a group or two, if I did I hope you will forgive the oversight and know that your work is appreciated.
I wish each of you a safe, warm and happy holiday. Thank you for your commitment to serving our customers and being part of TriMet.
