In Honor of #TDAD, CTA customers today are encouraged to take a moment to thank their bus drivers and rail operators for their work.
“No matter the challenge—weather, traffic or time of day—CTA bus and train operators strive to provide excellent customer service to 1.5 million customers daily,” a CTA press release says. “These dedicated, hard-working employees care about their customers and take their job of providing an affordable, reliable and safe commuting experience seriously. This is our customers’ opportunity to say, ‘thank you!’”
