PalmTran Is Honored At Transportation Conference

WEST PALM BEACH, FL ( via — Palm Tran, Palm Beach County’s public transportation system, was the recipient of several honors at the 2011 Annual Conference of the Florida Public Transportation Association (FPTA).

Palm Tran received the first-place Unit Safety Award for transit systems operating more than 100 buses. This is the second consecutive year that Palm Tran has been recognized by its peers as having the safest transit system in the state of Florida.

Transit systems are evaluated based on criteria such as total accidents and miles of service and are awarded in two categories: small bus systems (under 100 buses) and large bus systems (100 buses and over). Additionally, Palm Tran’s Public Information and Marketing Department received several awards including the first-place Award of Excellence in the electronic media /audio visual category for an advertising slideshow displayed at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Two Awards of Merit were earned in the exterior signage category for the agency’s new bus stops and in the internal/employee communications category for a pocket brochure created for bus operators.

FPTA’s 37th Annual Conference was held October 16-18 in Tampa, Florida.
