Kentucky Public Transit Association Receives 2014 State Leadership Award

Saint Paul, Minn. -June 11, 2014. The Kentucky Public Transit Association

(KPTA) today was awarded the 2014 State Leadership Award by the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) at its annual Awards Banquet in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The association was recognized for its tireless and dedicated work to secure investment and support for community and public transportation throughout Kentucky. Beecher Hudson, KPTA's Director, accepted the award on behalf of the Kentucky Public Transit Association.

The award, presented annually at the Association's national EXPO, recognizes excellence by a state Department of Transportation or Transportation Association in serving the needs of transit riders, professionals and systems in their state. In presenting the award, the CTAA Board Regional Director Robert P. Koska noted that the organization, "has built a strong relationship at the state level, working directly with the state legislature and governor, which brings together a rare partnership of the state Medicaid and transportation agencies. Successful transit days at the state capital and active involvement with other transit associations around the nation are also hallmarks of this organization's work."

The Community Transportation Association, established in 1989, is a national non-profit, membership association committed to removing barriers to isolation and improving mobility for all people.  The Association provides informational resources, technical assistance, training and certification, and many additional resources to communities, transportation providers, and other groups to increase mobility and improve the quality of community and public transportation.
