The RTA Wins an AdWheel Grand Award!

October 14, 2019

Adwheel awards

Over the next few days, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) is hosting the TRANSform Conference—its annual flagship event for the public transportation industry providing the latest in policy, technology, and new mobility ideas. It includes the AdWheel Awards, and the RTA is proud to announce that we are a big winner!

The AdWheel Awards recognize the marketing and communications efforts of APTA’s members. Additionally, the annual awards competition creates a structure to share best practices and to raise awareness of the value of public transportation marketing professionals within the industry.

APTA had 317 entries for this year’s AdWheels and the judges ultimately chose 12 Grand Award winners—four from each of the following categories:

  • Ridership
  • Educational Initiatives
  • Funding and Ballot Initiatives

I am proud to announce that the RTA’s Invest in Transit video won a Grand Award for the Funding and Ballot Initiatives category! Inspired by the 2018-2023 Regional Transit Strategic Plan, the video helps make the case for investment in our regional transit system and the need for passage of a state capital bill for the first time in a decade. It was an integral part of the RTA’s educational and advocacy work that contributed to the passage of Rebuild Illinois in June.
