[IMAGE]Minn-6.jpg[/IMAGE]Last month, the University of Minnesota's Parking and Transportation Services was recognized as the Transit System of the Year by the Minnesota Public Transit Association (MPTA).

The award recognizes an organization that has demonstrated achievement in efficiency and effectiveness including ridership, cost, safety, maintenance proficiency, agency policy and administration, and the achievement of an organization's goal and objectives. First Transit has operated the campus shuttle since 2007. More than 3.8 million passengers ride the shuttle annually.

"We're very proud to be a part of the University's transportation service and we look forward to working together to provide safe and reliable transportation services for years to come," said Paul Buharin, GM, First Transit.

Established in 1975, the MPTA speaks out for transit systems and transit riders throughout the State of Minnesota. The MPTA advocates for high quality transit service for the community and working to increase transit funding.
