Community Transit recently honored Darren “Casey” Noblick with a Two Million Mile driver award. Three other bus drivers — Ron Holmes, Alva Lissner and Dave Shultz — received Million Mile driver awards.
Noblick, who began driving for Community Transit in 1991, is now one of five Two Million Mile drivers currently on the road for the Snohomish County transit agency.
The National Safety Council sets the standard for a Million Mile Award, and it takes about 12.5 years of full-time driving without a preventable accident to earn it.
Noblick said he aims for safety by thinking of his bus as “a 60-foot missile going down the road.”
All awardees receive a Million Mile jacket, plaque, certificate and pin, and a decal on a Community Transit bus with their name on it.
