CityLink to Celebrate 10th Annual Jerome Lilly Passenger Appreciation Day on Apr. 20

On Friday, April 20, 2018, CityLink will celebrate its 10th Annual Passenger Appreciation Day to honor Jerome Lilly by providing free rides to passengers all day on all fixed routes.  Lilly, a beloved General Manager of CityLink, passed away unexpectedly in 2007.  April 20 the following year was chosen as the date for Passenger Appreciation Day because it was Lilly’s birthday.
 
In addition, a special item will be given away as a token of appreciation at the downtown Transit Center, located at 407 SW Adams.  This year, the giveaway is a pair of earbuds that passengers can use to listen to music or videos on their mobile device while riding the bus or waiting at the Transit Center or a bus stop.
 
Representatives from CityLink will have a table set up in the lobby of the Transit Center from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.  After that, passengers can receive the item at the Customer Service windows until the supply runs out.
 
Earth Day is just two days later on Sunday, April 22.  Since its beginnings in 1970, nearly 200 countries participate in Earth Day to promote a clean environment for generations to come.  Passenger Appreciation Day on April 20 is an excellent opportunity to ride a CityLink bus and become more familiar with the service. Riding the bus is also an environmentally friendly transportation option.  All CityLink buses are Tier 4 Emission Certified with Cummins Engines, and use B20 soy-based biodiesel fuel, which means they emit cleaner air than they take in.  CityLink also added a total of four 40’ New Flyer Xcelsior® diesel-electric hybrid buses in its fleet in 2016 and 2017.  These buses can reduce emissions by up to 90% when compared to conventional diesel-fueled buses.  Passenger Appreciation Day is a great way for individuals who may not normally ride the bus to enjoy a safe and comfortable ride to their destination and do their part to participate in Earth Day by choosing CityLink.
