Driver of the Month - August 2021



We appreciate our drivers! Their courtesy, professionalism, and bravery is a huge part of what makes ClasTran a success, and that's been especially true throughout this pandemic. Covid-19 has been hard on everyone, but it has been especially difficult for essential workers, including drivers in the public transit industry. They kept going when everything else was shut down.


Our drivers put their lives and the lives of their families at risk during the pandemic to continue providing essential transportation for the elderly and disabled. They provided transportation to grocery stores during senior hours, medical appointments, critical dialysis treatments, and Covid-19 testing and vaccination sites. Because of them, we were able to deliver thousands of meals to homebound seniors during the pandemic. They even came in after hours to transport people to shelter and safety during the fire at the Highland Manor apartments.


Sadly, ClasTran lost one of its most beloved drivers, Randy Roberson, to Covid-19 in January 2021. Randy loved his job. He was a wonderful, caring, and brave soul with a great attitude and a passion to serve his community. He even volunteered to transport dialysis patients who had tested positive for Covid-19 to and from critical treatments. He will be sorely missed.



As a tribute to Randy's life and service, we are bringing back our Driver of the Month program to shine a light on our dedicated drivers who work so hard to make a difference in our communities and to ensure our continued success. Please join us in congratulating our drivers of the month for August 2021!

Words from our riders:


"Darron is great! He's a very polite man. He takes care of all of the seniors that ride his bus." — Virginia A.


Words from the driver:


"What I really enjoy about working at ClasTran is to interact with my coworkers and my passengers. I have a very small family and my mother is deceased, so for me to have a work family is everything. Before my mother left, she always told me to get in church and keep the Lord with me. So I did, and I'm glad I have that and more, because I'm blessed to have a family behind me with ClasTran." — Darron Johnson
