Island Transit honors maintenance team

Island Transit is recognizing its maintenance team with a Wall of Fame Team Award.

The team, composed of Steven Aus, Mark Colston, Mike Earl, Kevin Gentry, Mike Hammett, Matt Hicks, Julian Sakmar, Chad Yingling and Will Vogelman, along with Maintenance Department Manager Ken Riley, work to foster a culture of providing safe, high quality maintenance, to support a wide variety of buses, van pool vehicles and support equipment, according to IT officials.

Their efforts in no small part contribute to Island Transit’s recognized safety record such as the 2017 WSTIP Safety Star award, said a press release issued by IT.

“Their hard work, pride and dedication are a great reflection on themselves and Island Transit and are well deserving as the Island Transit Wall of Fame Team Award,” the press release said.
