October 2016 Driver of the Month - Rhonda Tandy

Rhonda Tandy

Hopkinsville Transit recognizes its October Driver of the Month – Rhonda Tandy – for her outstanding service to the community!  Our riders have spoken and we agree Rhonda is an awesome driver for our system.  Some of those who nominated her remarked that:

  • She has a great personality; she is kind and patient. She takes the time to get to know all her passengers and memorize their schedules and where they need to go.
  • It was actually hard to choose just one, because my experiences with each driver has been wonderful, but if I had to pick one it would be Ms Rhonda. She goes out of her way to make each of her [passengers] feel special whether it's a simple hello to asking how [you’re] doing.

Rhonda is a single mother of 2 and a proud grandmother of 2 grandsons.  In her spare time, she enjoys reading and spending time watching her son (Bubba Tandy) play football and spending time with her family.

Hats off to Ms. Rhonda for her superior customer service, exceptional safety record, and exemplary attendance!
