“The people that drive our buses and support public transit across B.C. deserve our respect and appreciation, not just on this day, but every day,” Pinkerton said in a release.

BC Transit also produced videos highlighting some of the positive impacts staff have in their communities. A video showing how the company helps police in B.C. locate missing persons will be released on March 18. Residents can watch the videos at or share their own stories by registering.
