Omnitrans Million Mile Safe Drivers Honored

New members of the Omnitrans Million Mile Club celebrate their achievement

This month, the Omnitrans Million Mile Club welcomed nine new 1 million mile drivers and three 2 million mile drivers into its ranks. These dedicated coach operators have achieved the prestigious 1 million mile mark by driving for 12 years, totaling 25,000 driving hours, all without a preventable accident. It’s the equivalent of driving to the moon and back–twice!

    Congratulations and continued success to all of you . Thank you for being safe and delivering so many dedicated riders safely to their destinations !

  2. I remember Karen from Route 9 when it went into Fontana. I ride often with Mr. Gonzalez on Route 61 but I remember him when he drove Route 14 into Montclair which is now Route 66. At first I didn’t recognize Michael with his new haircut but I do recall riding on his route many times. Michael is one of many friendly drivers. Wow, I am a million miles rider…lol Congrats to all the million miles drivers.
