Safety & Security Excellence: 100th Anniversary of Awards

APTA Chair Peter Varga and APTA President & CEO Michael Melaniphy presided at the annual Rail Safety & Security Excellence Awards at the June 17 General Session in a special program moderated by Paul Jablonski, chief executive officer, San Diego Metropolitan Transit System. The awards program, celebrating its 100th anniversary, acknowledges rail transit agencies in North America for their excellence in safety and security programs and operations.

“To be successful on a grand scale, safety and security programs need champions,” Jablonski said in his remarks. “This year, APTA is proud to honor all of the champions who have made our industry safer—for 100 years and counting.”

Deborah Hersman, president and CEO, National Safety ­Council, addressed the luncheon (see related story), and FTA Deputy Administrator Therese McMillan offered brief congratulatory remarks.

APTA presents Certificates of Merit and Gold Awards. Certificates of Merit for Light Rail Safety went to the Regional Transportation District, Denver, and Metro Transit, Minneapolis.
