TransLink earns top sustainability honors from APTA


TransLink has earned platinum level status for sustainability from the American Public Transportation Association (APTA).

The agency is the first Canadian transportation organization to earn the designation, TransLink officials said in a press release.

TransLink also is now one of four North American transit organizations to have achieved platinum status, joining the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Sound Transit and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

Before bestowing the honor, APTA reviewed TransLink's comprehensive program to improve the management of energy, air pollutants, water, waste and greenhouse gas emissions.

"TransLink is a model of sustainability excellence and its leadership in implementing sustainable practices makes Metro Vancouver communities better, greener places to live," said APTA President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Melaniphy.
