First Transit Agency Receives Environmental Honor in Louisiana

The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality recently honored a First Transit property, the City of Monroe Transit System, with its 2009 Environmental Leadership Program Municipality Achievement Award in pollution prevention.

The award recognized the public transit agency’s use of biodiesel, introduction of buses with particulate filters and low emission vehicle ratings, and promotion of the benefits of transit ridership, leading to significantly improved air quality in the region and increased awareness of the environment.

“I am extremely proud of the work Monroe Transit has put into their operations and happy to be recognized for our contributions,” said Brad Thomas, president of First Transit. “By using innovative technology to improve the impact on the environment, we can ultimately contribute to keeping our planet clean while continuing to provide efficient and reliable service.”
