City of Rome and the Transit Department to Celebrate Customer Appreciation Day as Part of Georgia Cities Week


By Kathy Shealy

The City of Rome and the Transit Department announce “Ride with Your City Commissioners Day” on Tuesday, April 24 as part of “Customer Appreciation Day” festivities in celebration of Georgia Cities Week.

The City of Rome Transit Committee invites the community to enjoy a full free day of public transportation for all bus routes in Rome. In addition to free transit fares, the public is invited to join Rome City Commissioners for a ride on a special service route along the main line. The commissioners will depart from the Midtown Transit Station at 10:30 a.m.

The route will be shortened so city commissioners can return to greet the public at a free hot dog lunch hosted as part of Customer Appreciation Day festivities. The free hot dog lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Midtown Transit Station.

“We are excited the Rome City Commissioners will help us celebrate both our customers and this great city service,” said Kathy Shealy, Rome Transit Director. “Cities with public transportation benefit from higher economic productivity. Transit provides access to jobs and offers personal mobility and freedom for people from every walk of life.”

The Transit Department’s Customer Appreciation Day coincides with Georgia Cities Week. Each year the City of Rome highlights unique services the city provides. Throughout the week, the city will utilize social media to promote how the city serves as a central place for people, business and communities. The week will also promote Rome’s heritage of prosperity and a future focused on providing outstanding services for citizens.
