CNYRTA named 'Outstanding Transportation System'

Posted on August 15, 2006

The Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (CYNRTA) was named "Outstanding Public Transportation System" by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) for its superior efficiency and effectiveness. "We look forward to building on this important recognition and continuing to ensure that New Yorkers enjoy the safest and most efficient transportation system possible," said New York Gov. George E. Pataki during a recognition ceremony. The APTA award, which will be presented during the association's annual meeting in October, highlights transportation systems that provide between 4 million and 30 million passenger trips annually. Nominees are considered based on their performance in numerous areas, including safety, operations, customer service, financial management and community relations. Other awards received by the Syracuse, N.Y.-based operation include the U.S. Department of Transportation's United We Ride Leadership Award of 2005.
