Connecting with your riders webinar series wins first place APTA Adwheel Award

Connecting with Your Riders selected as Best Comprehensive Campaign

February 25, 2020, Orlando, F.L., – TransLoc, a Ford Mobility company* and provider of transportation technology solutions, has today been announced as a First Place AdWheel Award winner by the American Public Transportation Association. TransLoc’s webinar series, Connecting with Your Riders, was selected as the Best Marketing and Communications Educational Initiative​ – Comprehensive Campaign – among transit suppliers.

“It is a great honor for us to begin the year with such a wonderful award for recognition of our marketing initiatives and tireless efforts that help our clients.” said Aviva Imbrey, Director of Marketing at TransLoc. “As transit suppliers, we understand that our job does not stop once a client’s services has launched, rather it has only just begun. It is our mission to ensure they are equipped with the necessary tools to create a successful service. This award is an affirmation that our hard work and relentless efforts have paid off.”

The three-part instructional series was created with transit providers and riders in mind, as a way to help transit professionals better communicate with and understand rider needs. The campaign covered topics such as understanding data to improve transit services, engaging with riders through the use of public-input surveys, and using social media as a marketing tool.

The AdWheel Awards recognize the marketing and communications efforts of APTA’s members, and create a structure for transit providers and suppliers to share best practices, helping to raise awareness of the value of public transportation marketing professionals within the industry.

First Place winners were honored during a special awards luncheon on Feb. 25, at the 2020 APTA Marketing & Communications Workshop in Orlando, Florida.

Grand Award winners are selected from the First Place winners and will be honored at APTA EXPO 2020 in Anaheim, CA, October 11-14, 2020.
