METRO Magazine is pleased to announce the winners of its 2022 Innovative Solutions Award, which will be featured online in Monday’s METRO Express newsletter and in our October issue.
Now in its eighth year, the Innovative Solutions Awards honors bus operations and their supplier partners who have implemented initiatives that helped them save money, run more efficiently, streamline operations, increase safety, improve customer satisfaction, increase ridership, and more.
This year’s winners are heavily focused on providing mobility in ways that solve different issues impacting the regions they provide service in, as well as testing technology that can improve driver safety.
This year’s winners are:
- Durham Region Transit/Spare Labs/Transit – Mobility
- L.A. Metro/Rosco – Safety
- King County Metro/Hopelink/The Routing Company – First Mile/Last Mile
- Porter County Aging and Community Service/RideCo – Paratransit
“We are very excited about winning this award,” said Jeff Switzer, public information officer, strategic communications & engagement, for the GM’s office at Seattle’s King County Metro. “The Ride Pingo service was a long time coming, we were happy to be able to launch service and provide some much-needed transit connections to this community.”
METRO’s staff would like to thank everyone who applied, congratulations again goes to all our winners, and don’t forget to tune in online and in print to find out more about their stories.
