Why WSO Honored Ryan I. Daniel
Daniel exemplifies the principles of the WSO and the J. Peter Cunliffe Transportation Award as well as the dedication necessary to lead Metro Bus on its continuing mission to provide safe, reliable, friendly transportation services for St. Cloud, Sartell, Sauk Rapids, and Waite Park.
During his tenure at Metro Bus, accidents have been reduced as the agency advanced the safety of staff and passengers to the top of the priority list. In 2016, Daniel initiated new safety improvements that reduced preventable accidents by 55% from 2017 through 2021.
Development and implementation of the Metro Bus Safety Program was the key management factor in this improvement.
