West Side Transport’s first annual awards gala was a great success. We gave away 24 awards for various accomplishments. We also gave away over 200 prizes and 5 GRAND PRIZES! Every single employee for West Side Transport left with a prize and a West Side Transport laser engraved decorative glass.
We awarded driver with safe driving awards who logged either 500,000 miles, 1 million miles and 2 million accident free miles. This is a HUGE accomplishment and almost unfathomable that someone can go 500,000 to 2 million miles without a single accident.

Congratulations to our Safe Driving Award recipients on an excellent job!
Outstanding Student of the Year
We have a great student program at West Side Transport. We wanted to make sure we awarded excellence for going above and beyond what was expected. We had a lot of students who qualified for the this award but we could only choose one!
Outstanding Student of the Year- Bryan Deininger
Outstanding Trainer of the Year
The reason our student driving program is so successful is because we have the best group of trainers that a company could ever hope for. Our trainers take pride in their ability to train the future generation of drivers! This was a very close call and a very difficult decision to make. Safety looked at each students accident history and who trained that student and added them up. The outstanding trainer of the year had 0 students who had 0 accidents over 2014 which is what set him a part from the rest of the group.
Outstanding Trainer of the Year – Jesse Baker

Driver of the Year
Another very difficult decision on deciding who would be our driver of the year. Even though every driver of the month deserves this award we had to decide on only one.
Driver of the Year – Eric Ellsworth
