Thankful Thursday: Road masters

May 22, 2014 

As a coach operator for Ben Franklin Transit, I want to take an opportunity to congratulate two of my colleagues who received national recognition for their excellence in driving skills. Dan Schmidt won second place in the 40-foot coach division and Gabe Beliz took home first place for the 35-foot coach division at the 2014 American Public Transportation Association International Bus "Roadeo" in Kansas City, Mo. These two men represented Ben Franklin Transit and the Tri-Cities with their outstanding abilities in the heat of an intense competition, and are wholly worthy of the accolades and congratulations due them. I am proud to be a part of this organization and proud to be their co-worker. Way to represent, Dan and Gabe! You've made the Tri-Cities proud!
