Saluting our First Providers

OmniRide understands that even in a pandemic reliable transit service is vital to the community.  Nobody here at OmniRide understands that more than our outstanding bus operators, dispatchers, mechanics, security and frontline operations staff. They are some our regions first providers.

Our region’s essential workers – doctors, nurses, grocery store employees,  and restaurant workers – are saving lives and putting food on America’s tables. Essential workers HAVE to get to work. Our OmniRide first providers are working hard to get the region’s essential workers where they need to go. Here at OmniRide we consider them, along with the region’s essential workers, HEROS!

Despite difficult circumstances, OmniRide’s first providers have still shown up every day to serve our community. We couldn’t be prouder of or more grateful for their dedication to keeping our services on the road.  

Please join us in saying THANK YOU to our bus operators, dispatchers, mechanics, security and frontline operations staff for a job well done during these unprecedented times. We can’t say it enough - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone who contributes to getting OmniRide's services on the road!

And when it’s time to get back to life our OmniRide first providers look forward to welcoming back the rest of our riders.  We’ll be ready for you when you return!
