Safety, Security Award Nominations Open

APTA is accepting nominations through March 1 for its 2016 Bus Safety & Security Excellence Awards and through April 1 for its Rail Safety & Security Excellence Awards.

These awards recognize APTA bus, paratransit and rail transit systems that have implemented programs or projects that have achieved documented success in addressing specific safety or security program areas.

APTA presents the bus awards in four categories, three for public transit systems based upon annual ridership measured in unlinked passenger trips (fewer than 4 million, more than 4 million and fewer than 20 million, more than 20 million) and a fourth for private providers, either transportation management or contracted service. The rail awards are presented in three modal categories: commuter/intercity/regional/high-speed rail, heavy rail and light rail/streetcar.

APTA acknowledges winners during special events at the Bus & Paratransit Conference, May 15-18, and the Rail Conference, June 19-22.

Find evaluation criteria, nomination forms and past winners at the APTA website under Member Programs and Services. For questions, contact Dennis Lytton.
