The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) has named Metro’s own John Catoe as the best public transportation manager of 2009. APTA has credited Catoe for managing Metro well during Inauguration craziness, as well as improving safety system-wide in the wake of several Metro-related pedestrian fatalities. Metro has started calling itself “The Best Ride in the Nation”, and with this honor, it doesn’t seem so off-base.
What do you think? Has your commute gotten significantly better since January 2007, when Catoe began at Metro?
