CATS' Muth receives public transportation award


John Muth, interim chief executive officer of the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS), last week was honored with the the 2015 Governor's Award for Public Transportation.

First given in 1988, the award is presented annually for "outstanding service" in public transportation, officials from the North Carolina Department of Transportation said in a press release.

Muth has served as deputy director and chief development officer for CATS since 2000. He currently oversees the planning and implementation of rapid transit projects, multi-modal facilities, transit centers, park-and-rides and passenger projects.

He led the development of the 2030 Corridor System Plan for light-rail, commuter-rail, streetcar and bus lines in five rapid transit corridors, NCDOT officials said.

Muth became the agency's interim CEO in December 2014.
