RTA operators are essential to keeping our community moving.

Through the ups and downs of the worldwide pandemic, RTA operators have been here for you providing essential trips to customers. RTA drivers connect your friends, family, and neighbors to work, school, the grocery store, and medical appointments – all with safety as a top priority.   The RTA is grateful for their hard work and dedication to our passengers and to the community.

The agency will be honoring all of its drivers internally, and encourages riders to say “thank you” either verbally or by handing out “thank you” notes. The nationally-recognized day will also be documented on social media.
