MY RIDE Dallas selected Louis Gonzalez to receive the first-ever Annie Jones Driver Excellence Award. Mr. Gonzalez was selected by a panel of consumer advocates and agency partners from among hundreds of nominations for demonstrating safe, respectful, reliable service.
“Courteous drivers make a difference, especially for people who do not drive, and we are pleased to publicly recognize Louis Gonzalez for providing superior service and sensitivity to his passengers,” said Mary Grinsfelder, mobility project manager for MY Ride Dallas.
Mr. Gonzalez was nominated by Ms. Bobby Lou Turrentine:
“Louis takes me mornings to and sometimes from C.C. Young
Retirement Center. He calls back when the dispatcher says he doesn’t have to. He
is kind to all races and does not show partiality to anyone. He speaks English
and Spanish. Also, he will not begin the trip unless seatbelts are used. He
helps me with my art case on Thursdays. Louis informs the afternoon driver when
he knows that I will need early 1:00 PM pick up (to be ready for my call). He
knows Paratransit and DART line schedules when I ask.”
Congratulations to Louis Gonzalez, this year’s recipient of the Annie Jones Driver Excellence award!
