Greater Dayton RTA

RTA bike video recognized with Telly Award

The Greater Dayton RTA video, “Rack and Roll,” has been awarded a bronze Telly Award for outstanding achievement in the How-To/Instructional category. Telly winners are chosen from more than 11,000 entries from all 50 states and several countries.

The Rack and Roll video, which depicts how to use a bicycle on RTA buses, was produced for RTA by DH Productions, a Dayton video company operated by Rick Davis. The video can be viewed online at under “Riding RTA,” “Bikes on RTA.” Both DH Productions and RTA received a 4½ pound bronze statuette, produced by the same company that makes the Oscar and Emmy award statuettes, Davis said.
