St. Louis Metro's long-range transit plan wins award

Posted on November 3, 2010

St. Louis Metro was honored by the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) for the level of participation by the public in the development of "Moving Transit Forward," its long-range transit plan, which offers a menu of transit solutions to meet the St. Louis region's needs over the next three decades.

"Metro is pleased by the recognition of our dedicated effort to engage the people of the region in development of this important plan to shape the future of public-transit services for the St. Louis region," said Metro President/CEO John Nations. "We provided approximately 200 opportunities for area residents to get involved and to contribute to the plan to continue to build transit service that not only connects people throughout the region, but also fuels economic development and quality jobs."

At an awards presentation in Scarborough, England, last week, IAP2 honored projects from New South Wales and Logan City, Australia; Vancouver, Canada; Washington D.C. and Phoenix. Vancouver's TransLink won IAP2's Innovation Award, with Metro placing second.
