By on March 22, 2020

Four coach operators have been inducted into Omintrans’ One Million Mile Club.

Joseph Sozanski, Pete Aleman, Edwin Alaniz and Cesar Aparicio were recognized recently for driving 25,000 hours over 12 years without a preventable accident, according to a statement on the transit agency’s website.

The award is given out every year. The distance driven is the equivalent of traveling to the moon and back.

“Our community trusts Omnitrans to transport people safely, and that remains our top priority,” Director of Operations Shawn Brophy said in the statement. “The accomplishments of our One Million Mile Club drivers exemplify our commitment to fostering a safety culture through training and education.”

All four drivers received a plaque, jacket, hat, belt buckle, certificate, silver name plate, one day off with pay and $500, according to the statement.
