Fort Worth, TX - The South West Transit Association (SWTA) is pleased to announce the recipients of its annual Spotlight Awards, which recognize excellence in marketing and outreach efforts produced by transit providers across SWTA’s eight-state region.

Seven public transit agencies throughout the SWTA nation took home Spotlight Awards during the 2022 Summer University conference in Rogers, AK.

The award entries – reviewed and judged by marketing and communication professionals at transit agencies and private marketing firms – are among the oldest awards recognizing marketing campaigns and projects in the public transportation industry, first awarded in 1990. Winners are selected from submissions in categories of different-sized transit systems and for multi-platform marketing campaigns along with specific print, electronic, social and event media projects.

Representatives from the marketing and communications departments of the agencies listed below shared details of their award-winning campaigns and projects on Tuesday, July 26th at 10:00 a.m. (Central) as part of SWTA’s 2022 Summer University Conference.
