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.

This isn’t the first time RTA has been recognized for its annual report designed by Zhappo Studios: Its 2007 annual report earned two national awards, and its 2009 and 2012 annual reports took home first-place APTA awards.

Hundreds of people are getting an intimate look at the Riverside Transit Agency’s (RTA) latest accomplishments, its newest services and its positive financial standings thanks to the Agency’s Annual Reports. Each year, hundreds of copies of the report are printed and distributed to city officials, regional and state lawmakers, chambers of commerce, schools, members of congress, libraries, media outlets, other Southern California and national transit agencies. The report’s main objective is to provide an easy-to-read, comprehensive and entertaining document that highlights successes, popular programs and statistical information related to RTA.
