Nine Members Achieve Higher Levels In Sustainability Commitment; Three Agencies Join Effort

APTA has announced that nine public transportation organization signatories have achieved a higher recognition level in its Sustainability Commitment and three member agencies have become signatories since the 2014 APTA Annual Meeting & EXPO.

Seattle’s Sound Transit advanced from Gold to Platinum recognition, the highest level in the commitment, because of its ISO 14001 certification, effort to maximize the use of green materials in concrete use, regenerative braking pilot program and climate change adaptation plans.

Three members achieved Gold recognition: Foothill Transit, West Covina, CA, up from Silver, and IMPulse NC LLC, Mount Olive, NC, and Metrolinx in Toronto, both up from Bronze.

Parsons Brinckerhoff and the Capital Metropolitan Transportation ­Authority, Austin, TX, each rose from the basic signatory level to achieve S­ilver recognition.

Basic signatories that achieved Bronze Level include Utah Transit Authority in Salt Lake City, Phoenix’s Valley Metro and TRC Companies, headquartered in Lowell, MA.

The new signatories at the basic level are Omnitrans, San Bernardino, CA, ­Cincinnati Metro and the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority.

These honorees will be recognized at the APTA Sustainability & Public Transportation Workshop, Aug. 2-4 in Portland, OR. For information, click here.
