Metro Soars toNew Heights
wins transit industry’s mostprestigious award for 2006
fall 2006
I have very good news to share with you this month: Metro has been selected toreceive the Outstanding Public Transportation System Achievement Award for 2006.This prestigious award – the transit industry’s highest honor – will be presented toMetro, October 10, by the American Public Transportation Association APTA ). APTA presents the award to transportation systems “that have demonstratedachievement in e
ciency and e
ectiveness.” I believe it con
rms the agency’sstanding as a national transportation leader.We want every resident of Los Angeles to be as proud of the Achievement Awardas we are. We owe a lot to our customers, to the taxpayers who voted dollars for transit, to our local and state leaders who fought for funding, and to the membersof our Board of Directors and congressional delegation for their leadership and for the support they have given us.We also give great credit to our employees. Whether they drive a bus or train,clean or maintain our vehicles; whether they’re involved in planning, construction,operations, procurement, communications, customer relations or sta
support – itwas their individual contributions that helped bring us this great honor.What helped Metro win the Achievement Award for 2006? I believe it was serviceinnovations, technological advances, customer-focused initiatives, improved publicrecognition and acceptance of Metro services. We also can’t forget the successfulMetro Orange Line opening, expansion of the Metro Rapid system, all-time highcustomer satisfaction ratings and all-time low customer complaints.In this issue of Metro Quarterly, we’ll put the APTA Outstanding PublicTransportation System Achievement Award into context – what it is, what itmeans to Metro, to our customers and to the industry; and how Metro gainedrecognition as a “world-class” transportation system.Sincerely,Roger Snoble
