City Seal

Mayor Teri Johnston and the Key West City Commission gave a shout-out during this week's meeting to all of the employees in the transit system by proclaiming Transit Worker Appreciation Week, which runs from March 21 to the 25th.

Jude Desrosiers, honored as the Operator of the Quarter, accepted the proclamation.

"Today's public transportation plays a critical role in connecting our community to essential services such as jobs, school, medical facilities, and grocery stores," reads the proclamation.  "Additionally, transit provides community-wide emergency transportation during mandatory evacuations, mass casualty events, and special operations."

March 18, 1662, is believed to be the first day of scheduled public transit bus service for Blaise Pascal's "Five-Penny Coaches" in the City of Paris.

Eduardo Hidalgo Gato introduced a mule-powered streetcar system to connect "Gatoville" to the downtown Key West area in the 1880s.
