STAR Transit celebrates Rider Appreciation Week, November 9 -14

TERRELL, TX – STAR Transit will celebrate Rider Appreciation Week, November 9 – 14.

“To thank our riders, we are hosting a weeklong celebration with plenty of perks.  The riders are the inspiration that keep us going and make us want to provide the best service we can.  They are the reason we are doing so well after more than 40 years,” said Tommy Henricks, Executive Director.

To celebrate, STAR Transit is offering free rides on all modes of service for the entire week.

Kim Britton, VP, Planning and Development said, “Not only are we providing free rides but the Giveaway Team is back.  Transit riders in Kaufman County, Rockwall County, Seagoville, Balch Springs, Mesquite, Hutchins and DeSoto should be on the lookout for our staff.  They will be out and about all week, surprising riders with giveaways, including free rides, lanyards and bags.  You never know when they’ll board a STAR Transit bus armed with lots of freebees.”

“We are encouraging riders to post selfies on their social media pages using the hashtag, #STAppreciatesMe,” Britton continued. “STAR Transit will post pictures on the STAR Transit Facebook page, www.Facebook.com/startransit and Instagram, https://www.instagram.com/startransit_official/.”
