FRAMINGHAM – The MetroWest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) was recently awarded second prize in the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC) Photo Contest.
The NADTC photo contest was seeking photos that illustrate their mission: to increase availability and accessibility of community transportation options for older adults and people with disabilities. The contest was open to individuals who are transportation users or advocates and organizations that provide, fund, or are involved in community transportation and serve older adults and/or people with disabilities.
The photo contest allowed a maximum of three photos to be entered. Of
the three photos entered, one photo won second place and another won honorable mention.
Ieshia Price, Director Travel Training & Senior Relations submitted the photos on behalf of the MWRTA.
The second-place winning photo was of Price travel training an individual on the fixed route bus system.
“The MWRTA is honored to have won the NADTC Photo Contest. The MWRTA continues to make a conscious effort to provide individuals with disabilities as well as older adults, the option to travel independently using public transportation, as well as the opportunity to work in an accessible and comfortable environment” said Price.
Price works closely with MWRTA member communities and offers both group and individual travel training for the MWRTA fixed route system.
As the second-place contest winner, two of the MWRTA photos will be displayed on NADTC’s social media pages and publications.
Also, the photos will be recognized and displayed at the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging 44th Annual Conference & Trade Show in New Orleans July 27-31, 2019.
