Meet your Colusa County Transit Driver: Peggy Smith

IMG_3384For 22 years, Peggy Smith operated a day care facility; that was until she began working with the Colusa County Transit in 2006.

“I love this job!” said Smith, “I like to be out and about, and I love driving.”

For Smith, working for the transit is very similar to caring for children.

“I enjoy being around people of all ages,” said Smith, “I enjoy picking up the seniors for the senior luncheon and taking kids to school.”

The Colusa County Transit offers transportation for inner county district students who live in one town, but attend school in another.

Having your vehicle fixed? Smith says the Colusa County Transit is a great way to get around town.

“We are very covenant,” said Smith, “Just give us a call, and we will arrange a ride to your destination.”

Additionally, Smith says the transit is a great way to save gas and not have to worry about parking.

In addition to passengers, Smith says the Colusa County Transit is a great way to have deliveries made locally.

“We do a lot of flower, packages and prescription deliveries,” said Smith, “It’s a great resource for our county.”

Smith also commented that if you have a prescription delivered, to be home and that they can not leave it with a child.

“Having street visible addresses is very helpful too!” said Smith.
When Smith started with the transit eight years ago, she was trained by former transit manager, Barbara Salazar and Joanne Kisling.

“I can’t thank them enough; they trained me well,” said Smith, “It was a new experience for me, and it was very overwhelming at first.”

Since her employment, Smith doesn’t recall the total number of miles driven; however, she commented ‘it’s a lot!’

Smith enjoys working with her coworkers and loves spending time with them at their annual holiday parties.

When Smith isn’t driving her bus, she enjoys browsing yard sales, sewing and scrapbooking.

“I love yard sales,” said Smith, “You never know what unique treasures you might find.”

Take a ride with Smith, and call the Colusa County Transit, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM by calling (530) 458-0287.
