CityLink Celebrates 9th Annual Passenger Appreciation Day

CityLink celebrated its 9th Annual Jerome Lilly Passenger Appreciation Day on Thursday, April 20, 2017. The first Passenger Appreciation Day was celebrated on April 20, 2008 following the unexpected passing of a beloved CityLink General Manager named Jerome Lilly.  Jerome passed away on December 8, 2007. The following year the first Passenger Appreciation Day was celebrated on April 20. That particular date was selected for Passenger Appreciation Day because it was Lilly’s birthday. You can read more about Jerome Lilly and Passenger Appreciation Day here.

On Passenger Appreciation Day, CityLink offers free rides on all fixed route buses, along with a special giveaway item for passengers. This year a bus pass/ID holder was handed out on Jerome Lilly Day at the Transit Center and CityLink Administrative Office.

Below are a few photos taken during this year's Passenger Appreciation Day. Thank you to all of our loyal passengers for continuing to ride CityLink, and thank you for celebrating with us that day!

CityLink Marketing Assistant (and retired bus operator) Dennis Kaufman helped hand out the bus pass/ID holders to passengers that day.

Jerome Lilly's father (left) and brother (right) stopped by the Transit Center. It's always nice to see members of Jerome's family stop by and show their continued support of CityLink.

Randy Rundle from Mix 106.9 broadcast live at the Transit Center from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. that day. It was fun to have him there playing some tunes for our passengers and promoting Passenger Appreciation Day on the radio.
