MVTA wins national award

Minnesota Valley Transit Authority has won a first-place prize in the American Public Transportation Association’s 2012 Annual AdWheel Award competition for its “pennant” in the Promotional Materials category.

The AdWheel Awards honor outstanding excellence in public transportation advertising, marketing, and communications.

MVTA developed the pennant as a giveaway at area parades. It depicts scenes along MVTA bus routes and can be colored by children of all ages.
