FTA Honors Rural Agencies

The North Central Regional Transit District, Española, NM, and the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority, Aspen, CO, are among the recipients of the FTA Administrator’s Award for Outstanding Public Service in Rural Public Transportation, awarded during the recent 21st National Conference on Rural Public and Intercity Bus Transportation in Monterey, CA.

FTA presents the award to rural public transit providers whose efforts have improved the mobility of Americans in rural areas, allowing them better access to employment, training, education, and other services that improve community welfare.

“I think that all the residents of north central New Mexico can share and take pride in this award,” said NCRTD Executive Director Anthony Mortillaro. “When the NCRTD was certified as the first regional transit district in the state of New Mexico, 10 years ago, there were many who dreamed that a more than 10,000-square-mile, four-county area of northern New Mexico could be connected by a network of bus transit routes to provide residents of rural areas access to jobs, education, medical, and quality-of-life services. This acknowledgement shows that we can make it happen,” he concluded.
