Courteous, respectful drivers make a difference. To recognize drivers who best exemplify our commitment to courteous and respectful service, MY RIDE presents the Annie Jones Driver Excellence Award.

This new community-based award celebrates drivers who go above and beyond to make riders feel safe, comfortable and valued. It’s an opportunity for riders to nominate the drivers who make a difference in their lives.

Annie Jones has been a force to be reckoned with on transportation issues since 1984. Jones chained her wheelchair to a greyhound bus to protest the lack of support people with disabilities received from public transportation. At that time, neither greyhound buses nor DART buses were wheelchair accessible.

Thanks to the efforts of activists like Annie Jones, attention is being given to the transportation needs of older adults and people with disabilities. We take great pride in naming our most prestigious award in honor of her dedicated work.
