TransLoc 2019 Gold Winner - 9th Annual Best in Biz Awards

Recognized for pioneering technology solutions for transit providers

DURHAM, N.C., November 27, 2019 – TransLoc has been named a gold winner for “Most Innovative Service of the Year” by the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by prominent North American journalists.

A Ford Mobility Company*, TransLoc was recognized for pioneering technology that helps transit providers bridge the gap between rural, urban and suburban communities – giving transit agencies the data they need to understand their riders’ needs, and the technology to help them make flexible mobility a reality for all.

“We are honored to be recognized with the Gold Award for our award-winning transportation software, apps and services,” said TransLoc CEO Justin Rees. “TransLoc powers our transit providers with smart technology that makes mobility efficient and accessible for all.”

Since the program’s inception in 2011, Best in Biz Awards winners have spanned the spectrum, from the most innovative local companies and start-ups to some of the most recognizable global brands. This year’s judging panel includes esteemed journalists from the Associated Press, Barron’s, Wired, USA Today, Consumer Affairs and AdWeek.

TransLoc is honored to be recognized for its achievements over the last year, including fostering partnerships with more than 500 transit agencies across 48 states to help provide Americans with greater accessibility to transit. TransLoc looks forward to continuing the development of smart transportation solutions that will close gaps in transit service and give residents greater access to an affordable way to move about their city.
