FDL Area Transit Honored For Safe Driving

Transit Mutual Insurance Corporation of Wisconsin recently recognized the Fond du Lac Area Transit program and its employees for driving accident free in 2016. That honor was recognized during this week’s Fond du Lac City Council meeting when Council President Karyn Merkel presented Transit Director Lynn Gilles and some of her employees with a proclamation honoring that accomplishment. Gilles says they don’t really like to talk about accidents because it is a superstition thing. She thanked her staff and their drivers for being cautious, courteous and safe every single day. Each year Transit employees drive more than 170,000 miles throughout the City carrying 210,000 riders to their destinations.
