Sandra Hubbard was named the January Commuter of the Month after we heard from several of Sandra's co-workers at the Crowne Plaza Hotel telling us what a committed transit commuter she is. She takes the bus to work every day, and is always encouraging the folks she works with to take the bus or try carpooling.
We asked Sandra what she enjoys about her commute, and why she chooses to take the bus to work every day. She tells us, "I really love walking to work in the mornings (from the bus). The view from the bridge is so beautiful and that's when I prepare myself for my day. Not having to be stuck in traffic or worry about cars in front of me or anything. It's very relaxing. Everyone at KAT treats their passengers with respect and courtesy. They go out of their way to help us to get where we're going. I don't think people realize how easy it is to be a commuter or to even try. I love Knoxville, my hometown, and I would love for us to fix some of the air quality issues we have here. With just a little effort, we could make a difference."
We agree with Sandra on that one. Thanks for being such a wonderful ambassador for the Smart Trips program. To say thanks, we mailed Sandra a $25 gift card to Regal Cinemas.
