Staff Honored – 2021 WSDOT Wall of Fame

George Gorman – Transit Operator

George Gorman joined the RiverCities Transit team in March 2019 and demonstrates precisely that – how to be a great teammate.

One of George’s fellow operators noted, “He always goes above and beyond and is always willing to lend a helping hand. George is very friendly, and his passengers love him.” We couldn’t agree more.

George always has a smile on his face and continually looks to provide excellent service, whether assisting a customer or picking up an open shift for a dispatcher.

His supervisor notes George’s accident-free and complaint-free record as a great example of his dedication to doing his job well.

RiverCities Transit takes great pleasure in honoring George Gorman for his excellent performance and his exemplary service to our community.

Amy Asher – Former Transit Manager

Amy Asher joined RiverCities Transit as a Supervisor in 2014, became Transit Manager in 2015, and remained in this role until becoming the General Manager of Mason Transit in July of this year.

Amy is a model leader, whether dealing with challenging employment situations, writing successful grants, or building our new transit center.

Amy sets high expectations for her team and leads by example with her vision, integrity, positive attitude, and compassion for employees and customers.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, she relentlessly secured masks and sanitizer, ensured barriers were installed on all buses and vans, and perhaps most impressively, kept all of her employees working during the shutdown without any loss of hours or benefits.

Our loss is truly Mason Transit’s gain. We wish her and her new team the very best.

RiverCities Transit takes pride in honoring Amy for her seven years of outstanding leadership.
