Staff reports

The New York Public Transit Association announced the winners of its Achievements in Marketing Award at its recent Annual Conference in Saratoga Springs.

Mobility Managers Amber Simmons of Schuyler County, Tina Hager of Chemung County and Jane Davis of Steuben County were each named recipients of the award.

The award recognized the regional cooperative transportation education and public information efforts of the three Mobility Managers, as demonstrated through the recently published “Need a Ride?” 2011 Tri-County Bus Map and Guide. The guide is available at all Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben Workforce New York locations, as well as other offices and organizations in Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben Counties, and through public transportation providers. The easy-to-use guide is intended to make transportation more accessible to all residents of the area, simplify transit use to all local riders and to increase transit ridership.
