Outstanding Transportation Agency Award for 2023

StanRTA - CalACT Award 2023

The S was awarded the California Association for Coordinated Transportation’s (CalACT) Outstanding Transportation Agency Award for 2023. The S is the newest agency to ever receive this award! The award was presented to StanRTA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Adam Barth and his team at a CalACT awards luncheon on Tuesday, April 18, in Olympic Valley, CA. 


StanRTA has been a member of CalACT since the regional transit system was formed in 2021 and was nominated for this year’s Outstanding Transportation Agency Award for its success in merging the former Modesto Area Express (MAX) and Stanislaus Regional Transit (StaRT) systems to form The S.


StanRTA immediately established the core value that transit is a reflection of its users and is successful only when it meets the user’s needs. Through this principle, and under the guidance of the StanRTA Board of Directors, Barth and his team were able to fashion a new brand that made seamless the formerly fractured route system, create service equity, implement sound financial and administrative practices and policies that could meet evolving needs, and form relationships with Stanislaus County’s diverse communities through outreach and marketing activities. Such milestones were accomplished in two short years and caught the attention of CalACT. Congratulations!
