Phyllis Wade-Myers’ employee number is 273. For those familiar with Metro Transit, that three-digit number is a sign of her seniority; the company’s newer hires have five-digit numbers. She learned to drive on the old red “Jimmies,” which had manual transmissions and no power steering. “You had to stand up to turn,” she recalled. In the winter, drivers would put cardboard around the floors and wear snowmobile suits to keep warm.
