October has been an important month for Atomic City Transit. Not only did the bus system celebrate their first birthday, but staff members from the transportation department won an award, as well. The transportation department hosted a birthday celebration on Thursday for the public to enjoy, which was held in front of Fuller Lodge. Partygoers enjoyed free hot dogs, chips, drinks, cake and giveaways, as well as the chance to enter a drawing to win merchandise donated by local businesses. The celebration was held in honor of Atomic City Transit turning a year old, in addition to being a way to thank riders for using the bus system. On Oct. 6, Transportation Division Manager Nancy Talley and Public Works Senior Office Specialist Jill Carothers traveled to San Diego, Calif. to attend the 29th Annual American Public Transportation Association AdWheel Awards ceremony. At the ceremony, Atomic City Transit received first place honors for the Atomic City Transit Ride Guide entry in the print category, schedule notice/timetable subcategory. The awards recognize excellence in public transportation marketing and communications. The awards were presented during the APTA 2008 Annual Meeting and International EXPO, for which 17,000 people were in attendance. Nearly 750 entries were submitted in this year’s competition.
