The Bay Transit Christmas party was held at the Beacon in Topping Virginia on December 16th 2017.  The band was Mary Mack and the Homeboys.  At the party, door prizes were given out, as well as Safety Awards to all drivers who were employed for one full fiscal year, had driven at least 600 hours in that year, had no chargeable traffic violations or accidents, had not had any major infractions of policies in the driver’s handbook, and had attended all safety meetings for the year.

Forty-five drivers, which represents 83% of our drivers, met all these qualifications, and in the previous fiscal year 1,618,263 miles were driven, or the equivalent of 68 trips to circle the Earth.

A total of 151,657 passengers were served.

Three Safety and Advisory Committee member who had just completed a two year term were recognized, these were: Rudy Rudisill (Gloucester Office), Wayne Oliff (Warsaw Office), and JoAnne Veney-Mynatt (White Stone Office)

The Safety Committee assists Tom Clarke, Safety Manager and Bay Transit Leadership on determining key safety plans and ideas that need to be implemented to increase safety for all Drivers, passengers and the public.

Pat Sanders, Operations Manager introduced the three Regional Supervisors, Princess Wise (Warsaw), Claudia Pratt (Gloucester), and Katharn Cotman (New Kent)

Princess Wise, Regional Supervisor for Warsaw Bay Transit, is spreading some Christmas cheer by donating items needed for the Seniors at the Carrington Place in Tappahannock. We are proud of our staff that reach out to help others.

Bay Transit Quarterly Safety Meeting – A Special Presentation and Education Session

Bay Transit had 150,985 riders in the past year.  These riders or the families and friends of these riders come from all walks of life and many of these riders also have various disabilities, some more noticeable than others.  As a Bay Transit Driver or Employee, we serve all individuals regardless of their ability or disability.

On the evenings of 6/20 and 6/22, in Gloucester and Warsaw respectively, over 100 Bay Transit staff members learned many characteristics of individuals with various disabilities and how to transport them safely in a customer-friendly environment.  The American’s with Disabilities Act of 1990 was the focal point and details of the rights of passengers with disabilities were a key talking point.

The presentation was given by Ms. Catherin Tyler-Northan, Community Services Manager, with Insight Enterprises, Inc. which is part of the Peninsula Center for Independent Living in Hampton.  Joining Catherin are Independent Living Advocates with Insight Enterprises, Inc.:

Mr. Troy Bowser
Ms. Alicia Cook
Ms. Lorna-Mae Silcott and
Ms. Marissa Dixon, Community Support Services Advocate with Insight Enterprises, Inc.
