OC Transpo drivers have not been shown the love lately, so I have decided that the most visible City of Ottawa worker needs some support for the work they do. Here are ways we can spread a little affection their way.
O – Offer a “Hello” when you board the to the Bus Driver
C – Complain and Compliment if you must to 613-842-3600 or here http://tiny.cc/7x2gu
T – Time, a driver knows when they are behind, they can’t always control it
R – Remember that the bus is the Drivers workplace, Respect the space they need to drive
A – Allow for a bad day, cranky customers will affect everyone some way on some days
N – No one wants to make sure you have a good ride to or from work more than your driver
S – Smiles make a day go a lot better
P – Patience as the City works though route optimization and crowded buses
O- Offer a “Thank You” to the Driver when you leave the bus
If there is anything that could be fixed call OC Transpo, your Councillor or Councillor Deans, the Chair of the Transit Commission.
