Rural Transit Agencies: Apply Now for 2016 FTA Administrator’s Award


Any local rural transit provider receiving assistance under Section 5311 may be nominated for FTA’s Administrator’s Award for Outstanding Public Service. Transit providers will be judged on their success in improving the mobility of Americans in rural areas and providing better access to jobs, health care, and other community services. Nominations must address how transit systems create connections for riders, particularly in low-income communities, as well as veterans, seniors, youths, and disadvantaged populations.

The awards will be presented at the 22nd National Rural Public and Intercity Bus Transportation conference in Asheville, N.C. October 2-5, 2016. Award recipients will be expected to attend the conference, where they will be honored and will have an opportunity to share the secrets of their success with other conference attendees.
