February 2022 Employees of the Month
February 2022 Employees of the Month
It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to keep AC Transit buses on the road and running smoothly. Each month, the District honors the service of those drivers and mechanics who contribute directly to this effort by awarding “Employee of the Month” honors from our Supervision, Maintenance and Transportation divisions. Our candidates are nominated by supervisors at our Central Maintenance Facility and at each of AC Transit’s four bus divisions in Emeryville, Richmond, East Oakland and Hayward. Winners from each division and one from the Central Maintenance Facility are selected by the Superintendent of the division. Each winner receives a gift certificate to a local restaurant.
We are pleased to announce the “Employee of the Month” winners for February 2022.

When Division 2 was low on janitorial staff, Elaine went out of her way to help. She has always stepped up whenever needed. Elaine is a perfect example of a dedicated and hardworking employee. Whatever areas she cleans, there are always compliments from staff. Thank you, Elaine!
LaSonia Walker performs above and beyond her normal duties by assisting whenever needed. Ms. Walker is a true representative of what you want to see in any employee— commitment with a professional appearance and attitude. She is truly deserving of the title Employee of the Month. Congratulations, Operator Walker!
Sr. Body Mechanic
Juan is a great employee who always volunteers to help wherever needed. Juan routinely adjusts his schedule to help the Division with its needs and works overtime when necessary. Recently, Juan volunteered to stay late to help the Division prepare for our monthly Clean bus audit, which we passed. Juan also has excellent attendance, an upbeat demeanor, a superb work ethic, and typically works with minimal supervision. Keep up the great job!
EAST OAKLAND DIVISION
Operator Damon Britton is a valuable employee who goes above and beyond his normal work duties. Mr. Britton went out of his way to assist a stranger who was set on fire. This created a great image for AC Transit and specifically D4 Transportation. Above all that, Operator Damon is a safe driver that never misses a day at work. We appreciate you, Operator Damon!
Jose "Javier" Paez
Journey Level Mechanic
Javier is one of the lead troubleshooters on Day Shift. He uses his diagnosing skills to repair buses that would be an issue for other techs. He never shies away from working on any fleet. He is engaged in what goes on in the shop and shares his years of knowledge with the newer, younger maintenance staff. The District appreciates you, Javier.
Robert Greer has a positive attitude and great relationships with his peers and passengers. His knowledge, experience and great personality continue to help Division 6 achieve excellence every day. Transportation’s D6 Team is proud to name Operator Greer as its employee of the month.
Geronimo is always looking for more work. In his downtime, he walks the yard and inspects coaches for body damage or imperfections. With the latest rainstorms, we had a lot of Van Hools down for water leaks. Geronimo took on the task of finding the leaks and making repairs, which minimizes the downtime of the coaches. Excellent work Geronimo!
