David Cooper of Pacific Coachways Trailways in Garden Grove, Calif. was named the 2014 Outstanding Motorcoach Driver of the Year by Trailways Transportation System.

Cooper received the prestigious award from Tom Giddens, president of Pacific Coachways Trailways. It was presented by Bob Crescenzo, VP, safety & loss control, at Lancer Insurance, the awards event sponsor. The awards gala took place earlier this month, during the Trailways’ 79th Annual Stockholders Meeting and Conference in Palm Springs, Calif.

The award honors a driver who has the highest level of professionalism and safety during the past year. Cooper drove 41,000 passenger miles in 2014 with no reportable accidents on file and was never late or absent in reporting to work.

He was selected from 74 Trailways companies that are based in the U.S., Canada and Europe, all who are part of the transportation system. He has worked for Pacific Coachways Trailways for nearly 20 years.
