By Seattle Times staff reporter Marissa Evans
A Redmond man has been recognized as Metro’s 2012 Transit Operator of the Year by the King County Department of Transportation.
Robert Duncan, 60, received the honor in a surprise ceremony on Tuesday. He drives Route 311 part-time, carrying riders from Woodinville to Seattle and works at Metro’s East Base in Bellevue. He first joined Metro in 1977, and drove part- and full-time routes in three stints spanning about 30 years. He recently earned a 28-year safe driving award.
Other Metro operators chose Duncan as a respected peer who exemplifies excellence in safety and customer service, according to a press release from the transportation department. Since 1979, the drivers themselves have selected the best of their peers to hold the title of Metro Transit’s Operator of the Year.
