CityLink Celebrates 10th Annual Jerome Lilly Passenger Appreciation Day with Lilly Family

CityLink celebrated its 10th Annual Jerome Lilly Passenger Appreciation Day on Friday, April 20, 2018 by offering free rides on fixed route buses the entire day. In addition, CityLink also handed out a pair of free earbuds to passengers at the Transit Center as a "thank you" gift.

This year, several of Jerome Lilly's family members stopped by the Transit Center. Those present included this sisters Bonita Lilly and Cheryl Lilly-Anthony, his brother Tim Lilly, and father Thomas Lilly. His other sister Pam Lilly could not be there in person, but joined in via FaceTime. Jerome's family also rode one of the buses in his honor. It is always nice to see members of Jerome's family stop by and show their continued support of CityLink.

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.
