APTA wanting nominations for Excellence Awards

The American Public Transportation Association is seeking nominations for the 2011 Safety & Security Excellence Awards. The honor recognizes APTA bus transportation systems that have started projects or programs that focus on safety and security areas. Those nominated must show documented success in the program.

The awards are presented in four categories, with three going to public systems based on yearly ridership measured in unlinked passenger trips and the other open to private providers regardless of size. Deadline for nominations is March 31, 2011. Any questions about the awards can be directed to Bill Grizard at 202-496-4878 or by email at wgrizard@apta.com. For more information, visit www.apta.com.
