STAGECOACH WINS AWARD IN NATIONWIDE CONTEST
Stagecoach’s Passenger Guide, developed in collaboration with Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission, won 2nd place in a national excellence in communication contest sponsored by the National Rural Transit Assistance Program (National RTAP).
“Our Passenger Guide demonstrates the high level of skill and professionalism of our Community Relations Team” said Jim Moulton, Tri-Valley Transit’s Executive Director. “Every day they work to improve our region’s awareness of community transportation choices. The Passenger Guide is just one example of the important work they do to connect friends, support independence and promote healthy living in our community.”
Entries are reviewed and award winners are chosen by an expert panel of judges, consisting of National RTAP’s Communications and Marketing team and senior staff members. The brochures were judged based on creativity and effectiveness in communicating transportation and schedule information. Most entries were passenger guides, but some were general transit system brochures, targeted guides for youth riders, or brochures for the agency’s mobile app. Two entries had versions in English and Spanish, and one included links to audio and American Sign Language versions on their website.
“The annual contest is designed to recognize the important role communications plays in advancing access to public transportation” said Robin Phillips, National RTAP’s Executive Director. “It also seeks to inspire higher levels of performance among our members.”
Stagecoach enhances the social, environmental, and economic health of the region by providing safe and accessible community transportation services for everyone. For more information, please contact them at 802-728-3773 or on the web at www.stagecoach-rides.org.
