The Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) was pleased to earn a national award for its 2017 Annual Report that was designed by Zhappo Studios. The Transportation Marketing & Communications Association presented RTA with a Compass Award of Merit for its 28-page report that highlighted significant events during the 12-month period that included historic highs in ridership, the successful passing of a major financial audit, and renewed partnerships with area colleges.

The Riverside Transit Agency was proud to announce the launch on a new website that Zhappo Studios developed in June 2019. RiversideTransit.com features a cleaner, sleeker, mobile-first design that has made users’ browsing experience better than ever before. Customers can plan their trip, get route and schedule information and check out rider alerts from the new site designed especially for use on smart phones and tablets.

More than 2,500 Riverside Transit Agency bus stops got a whole new look in 2018 thanks to Zhappo Studios. During the summer, RTA began the installation of new signs at stops, phasing out the “Bus Stops Here” signs. The new signs, designed by Zhappo Studios, were a welcome sight for customers looking for simple, easy-to-read information while they waited for their ride. Thanks to the new signage, route numbers are now larger, color-coded by type of bus service and easier to read from a distance.

RTA was thrilled to earn a national award for its Zhappo Studios-designed 2013 Annual Report. The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) gave RTA a first-place AdWheel Award for its 24-page report that highlighted significant events during a busy 12-month period that included historic highs in ridership, the successful passing of a major financial audit, renewed partnerships with area colleges, and the acquisition of much-needed federal funding to renew the Agency’s bus fleet.
