Some lovely news: the Buzzer blog was named Best Blog at the 2010 American Public Transportation Association (APTA) AdWheel Awards !
To be specific, the Buzzer blog took the Best Blog prize among “public transportation systems with more than 20 million passenger trips annually,” which means we’re the top blog among the largest public transit systems in North America. The AdWheel Awards celebrate the best in marketing and communications from APTA members, so it truly is a wonderful honour to win!
I should mention that it’s not TransLink’s first time winning an AdWheel Award. In 2009, we won Best Internet Homepage for translink.ca, and Best Public Relations/Awareness or Educational Campaign for our Transit Secure ads. And in 2007 we won Best Campaign for a series of lovely recruitment ads .
But yes, this year is the blog’s chance to shine—so thanks so much to APTA, and thanks to everyone who makes this blog a part of your reading! The blog would not be so successful without you!
