CASTA Members in the News

CASTA members continue to be publicly recognized for their successes. Durango Transit was awarded by the Federal Transit Administration as one of the top three rural transit systems in the nation. Their dedication to serve citizens with limited access to public transportation as well as their creative ways of seeking funding are what led Durango Transit to their success. Amber Blake, Durango's Transportation and Sustainability Director accepted the award in Asheville, North Carolina on behalf of Durango Transit.
