This Thanksgiving I am grateful for how public transportation makes provision for my family and our community.  Driving is rewarding because I see how rides to daycare, work, healthcare, school, and the grocery store support life.

Having a holiday off gives me time to reflect on how interacting with passengers can be so meaningful.  Sometimes space opens up and they share stories from their life.  Listening to those stories gives me hope for our community.

I am thankful for you as a reader of this blog.  Please complete this form to share your contact information.  I hope to contact you about advocacy opportunities to help improve public transportation.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Happy Turkey Day, Phillip. So much to be thankful for this year. Your friendship is definitely on the list!

  2. Phillip, been following your blog. Great work you are doing! I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!

    Question: How much time does a driver have for family/volunteer work? It may depend on the assigned hours but looking at the vacation time for new employees, it seems very little amount. Also, how long does it take for them to accrue more vacation? Blessings.

  3. Thanks for the kind words. It takes 2 years to get 2 weeks of vacation. Sorry for the slow response. I was working like crazy!
