Celebrate Transit Worker Appreciation Day on March 18

For immediate release: March 11, 2024 - 11:00 am

March 18 is Transit Worker Appreciation Day, an annual day dedicated to recognizing and expressing gratitude for the hard work and dedication of all transit workers who keep Canada's public transit systems operational. Transit Worker Appreciation Day is celebrated annually on

March 18 and extends recognition with a full week of gratitude, until March 24.

Saskatoon Transit is responsible for the safe transportation of tens of thousands of trips every day, through all weather conditions. Regardless of where they work – whether it's on the shop floor, behind the wheel, in transit planning, administration or customer service – together transit workers aim to deliver the best possible public transit experience.

The Saskatoon Transit Management team is proud to celebrate Transit Worker Appreciation Day and invite everyone to take a moment to thank those who play a crucial role in connecting the community.

You can participate by expressing gratitude to transit workers through acts of kindness, such as saying thank you, writing ‘Thank-You’ notes, or sharing positive experiences on social media using the hashtag #ThanksTransit and tagging @stoontransit. If you visit the Downtown Customer Service Centre between March 11-17, you can also leave a quick ‘thank-you’ or heartfelt greeting on the #ThanksTransit Poster.

While Transit Worker Appreciation Day is a designated day to honour transit workers, expressing gratitude and appreciation for their hard work is encouraged year-round. Small gestures of kindness and recognition can go a long way!
