NCRTD Honored by NMDOT

March 9, 2015

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) has awarded the North Central Regional Transit District (NCRTD) as the (Fiscal Year) 2014 Section 5311 Transit System of the Year.

“Over the last 10 years, the NCRTD has progressed exponentially and proved to be exemplary in its compliance of State and Federal transit requirements, as well as for having an ongoing record of safe, efficient and growing public transit service,” commented David C. Harris, transit bureau chief at NMDOT.

Section 5311 is the Federal Transit Administration’s Rural Transit Assistance Program to meet the needs of transit operators in non-urbanized areas and the NMDOT oversees 21 subgrantees throughout the state of New Mexico.

In October, 2014, the NCRTD was awarded the Administrator’s Award for Outstanding Public Service in Rural Public Transportation by the Federal Transit Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation.
