Sustainability, Multimodal Planning Experts Share Ideas at Joint Workshop

APTA recognized signatories of the Sustainability Commitment for achieving new levels during the recent Sustainability and Multimodal Operations Planning Workshop in Minneapolis.

Honored were Amtrak, a founding signatory that advanced from Bronze to Gold Level; TRC Companies, Gold Level; Jacksonville (FL) Transportation Authority and Reno’s Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County, both of which moved from Entry Level to Silver; Louis Berger, Silver Level; Transit Authority of River City (TARC), Louisville, KY, which advanced to Bronze Level from Entry Level; and Wendel, Bronze Level.

Also, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) achieved top honors in a competition critiquing and judging paper transit agency system maps. SFMTA staff received the Stephen T. Parry Memorial Award, named after the late transportation manager who spent much of his career with the former Los Angeles Rapid Transit District, AC Transit in Oakland, CA, and CHK America.

APTA Sustainability Committee Chair and TARC Executive Director J. Barry Barker and Multimodal Operations Planning Subcommittee Chair Paul Bignardi, principal transportation planner, SFMTA, welcomed the more than 300 attendees on Monday morning.

During the host forum, Alene Tchourumoff of the Metropolitan Council and Adam Harrington, Pat Jones and Lucy Galbraith of Metro Transit, host system for the workshop, provided attendees many best practices reflecting the agency’s accomplishments with specific take-aways that can be used at other agencies.

The Multimodal Operations Planning Committee elected Cyndi Harper of Metro Transit chair, Dan Boyle of Dan Boyle and Associates first vice chair and Michael Abegg of Solano County Transit second vice chair.
