Calgary Transit Honours Exceptional Operators Nominated for White Hat Award

As Calgary continues its road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the 60th annual White Hat Awards, showcasing the ultimate in hospitality within the city, hold a special significance this year. After several years in which the awards had to be reimagined due to the pandemic, they now represent the industry's resurgence and the people who made it possible.

While the awards may have been paused, Calgary Transit has continued to move Calgarians year-after-year solely to serve its customers.

Among these hardworking individuals keeping transit moving are two Calgary Transit bus operators who have been nominated for the prestigious White Hat Award in recognition of their remarkable dedication, professionalism and excellence in customer service.

Operators, Catherine DeWolfe and Grant Massie, are nominated for their unwavering commitment to providing safe, comfortable and enjoyable transportation along the city’s streets.

“It’s great that they are being recognized for their positive attitudes and exceptional service which has not gone unnoticed by customers, colleagues and the wider community. They both exemplify the best of the industry in the Driver category,” said Stephen Tauro, Communications and Information Lead.

The winners of the White Hat Awards will be announced at a ceremony on May 24, which promises to be a celebration of the city's recovery and a tribute to the hard work and dedication of those who have kept the industry alive despite the pandemic.

Congratulations to the Calgary Transit operators and all the nominees honoured for the White Hat Awards–a significant marker that the industry and city is bouncing back stronger than ever!
