|APTA Awards Open for Nominations|
Is your organization one of the “best of the best,” or do you know an individual who has greatly advanced public transportation?
It’s time to submit nominations for the 2014 APTA Awards, which recognize excellence in the public transportation industry in North America, both on individual and organizational levels. APTA will accept nominations through April 23.
This year’s award categories are Outstanding Public Transportation Manager, Outstanding Public Transportation Board Member, Outstanding Public Transportation Business Member, Distinguished Service, Hall of Fame, Innovation, and Outstanding Public Transportation System Achievement.
At the recommendation of the 2013 Awards Committee, APTA’s Executive Committee approved some changes to the Outstanding Public Transportation System Achievement Award to streamline and strengthen the process. The changes include:
The quantitative and qualitative sections will now be considered equal in weight. All qualitative measures, which now count for 50 percent of the score, should include specific examples to support each of the 11 areas that must be addressed.
Some quantitative items have been revised. For example, Total Operating Cost (audited expenses) replaces three previous data items.
In addition, the definition of total full-time equivalent employees has been expanded to make sure that public transit agencies include subcontractors and municipal or government employees that are a part of the agency’s operating budget.
