The Florida Public Transportation Association (FPTA) recently recognized the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) as the "outstanding public transportation system in the state" this year.

The SFRTA's marketing efforts also were recognized with an additional four awards, including for a printed and electronic brochure for South Florida destinations that are accessible on Tri-Rail routes.

The awards were presented at the FPTA's annual conference held this fall in Daytona Beach.

"Each and every one of our employees played a part in helping the agency to achieve this honor," said SFRTA Executive Director Jack Stephens in a press release.

The awards come at a pivotal time for the agency, as it prepares to launch direct Tri-Rail service into downtown Miami and mark its 30th anniversary next year, SFRTA officials said.

Also, SFRTA is preparing for new leadership since Stephens begins his planned retirement Jan. 1.
