Athens Transit driver sets safety record

ATS driver Tommy Handy has been formally recognized for operating city buses in Athens for 30 years without a single accident.

"Thirty years of accident-free driving is almost unheard-of," Athens Transit Director Butch McDuffie said as the transit system prepared to recognize Handy for his three-decade safety record. "I bet there's not a handful of drivers around the country that can say that."
Congratulations on the accomplishment and the deserved recognition, Mr. Handy!

Thanks to you and your colleagues at ATS, riding the buses in Athens is a safe and pleasant experience.
