The District is thrilled to announce that SamTrans is being recognized for its outreach efforts on the “Plug into SamTrans” campaign promoting the introduction of electric bus service.

The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) awarded the District first place in its 2019 AdWheel Awards competition. The award acknowledges the creativity and collaboration that went into the campaign on behalf of multiple departments involved, including Communications, Marketing, Bus Maintenance and Operations.

The award will be presented at an upcoming APTA Marketing & Communications workshop in New Orleans at the end of February where representatives from the District’s Communications Department will be present to accept the award. The win also earns SamTrans eligibility to be considered for a Grand Award, the winners of which will be honored at the annual APTA meeting in New York City in October.
