San Joaquin RTD Wins National, Local Awards

San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) has been recognized nationally by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) for its marketing efforts and locally by the Central Valley Asian-American Chamber of Commerce (CVACC) for its accomplishments as a government agency.

RTD was highlighted on Tuesday, Feb. 25 during the APTA 2020 Marketing and Communication Workshop. APTA awarded RTD a first place Ad Wheel for its partnership with Stockton Unified School District (SUSD) in the category of “Best Marketing and Communications to Increase Ridership or Sales.” This financial partnership allows all seventh through 12th grade SUSD students to use the majority of RTD’s services at no cost year-round. Marketing and communication efforts such as this partnership are recognized during this annual event, which gives public transportation marketing professionals a structure to share best practices within the industry.

In addition, RTD has been recognized locally by the CVACC with the Government Agency Champion Award.

“We applaud RTD for leading the way with the first all-electric BRT route, the RTD Van Go! service, and diversity in leadership,” said CVACC Executive Director Leslie Edman.

This award is given to Central Valley government agencies that go above and beyond in addressing the needs of the community and maintaining a gold standard in innovation. The CVACC Community Recognition Awards Dinner will take place on Thursday, March 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at China Palace restaurant in Stockton.
