San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) announced today that, as part of a project team, it won the 2018 California Transportation Foundation (CTF) Award for Sustainable Transportation/Environmental Project of the Year.
The winning team included RTD, the City of Stockton, Bockman & Woody Electric Company Inc. (who installed the chargers for electric buses), electrical engineering firm Siegfried Engineering, Inc., and bus and charger manufacturer Proterra, Inc.
“Through collaboration and prioritization, RTD works daily to honor the city, provide clean air solutions, and support the community,” said RTD CEO Donna DeMartino. “We are thrilled to share this award with our valuable partners. RTD is committed to exemplary environmental stewardship and being the transportation service of choice for the residents it serves.
RTD’s drive toward zero-emission electrification has been recognized by a number of organizations. The Sacramento Chapter of the Women’s Transportation Seminar presented RTD with an Innovative Transportation Solutions Award, and the Sierra Club Mother Lode Chapter honored RTD CEO Donna DeMartino as the Outstanding Public Official of the Year. Most recently, PG&E chose RTD for its electric vehicle pilot program, which includes installation of charging systems and infrastructure at RTD’s Regional Transportation Center (RTC).
