Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

April 11, 2018 - Three bus operators received top honors for their performances in the local “roadeo” competition held on Sunday, April 8, 2018.

The Bus Roadeo serves as an arena for qualified employees to showcase their driving skills and prove their knowledge of safety procedures. The event consisted of a written safety quiz, a pre-trip bus inspection, a personal appearance checklist and a timed obstacle course.

The coveted first place prize, the Frederick “Flash” Gordon Award, was presented to 23-year veteran Louis Givens; Tom Parrish, a 31-year veteran placed second, and Donya Hart, who has been an operator for three years, placed third.

Givens will advance to the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) international competition to be held in Tampa, FL on May 6, 2018.

“I am extremely proud of the drivers and maintenance personnel who participated in our local roadeo. The obstacle course was complicated and all of them did well,” Curtis Koleber, CAT CEO said. “We are looking forward to our champion bringing home the Big Wheel at the APTA International Bus Roadeo.”
