More Honors for HART, And Pics from the Party!

The good news just keeps coming for HART.

At this week's annual conference of the Florida Public Transportation Association, HART was recognized for excellence in marketing among the state's public transit agencies.

HART received three marketing awards at the FPTA event, including:

Award of Merit for Print: Instructional Information
Award of Honor for Electronic Meida/Audio Visual: Television
Award of Merit for Online Communications: Social Media

All awards were in the Class 2 designation, which includes the larger transit agencies in Florida.

In 2009, HART was named the FPTA's Outstanding System in the state of Florida.

Next year's event is set to take place here in Tampa. As the host agency for the 2011 conference, HART CEO David Armijo concluded the closing banquet ceremony with an invitation to FPTA members and guests to join HART next October in Tampa. A video was featured to showcase HART, and the beauty and fun destinations of Tampa and Hillsborough County.
