2018 Website Contest
7/12/18, Woburn, MA
Is your website a winner? Then submit it to the 2018 National RTAP Website Contest! You will have the opportunity to win prizes and your website can be shared as an example to help other agencies just getting started with their online presence.
We've had photo contests, marketing brochure contests, and this year we're holding a contest to discover the top rural transit agency websites. We are collecting submissions from rural and tribal transit agency websites that contain useful information, are user-friendly, and look fabulous.
Read the criteria below and then simply fill out this form to enter! The deadline is August 31, 2018.
Submissions will be judged by the following criteria:
- Passenger information provided
- Customer service elements
- Visual quality
- Overall user-friendliness
In each of the three fleet size categories (0-5, 6-15, or 16+ revenue vehicles), we will award $300 each for the top winner, $50 for the runner up, and plaques for agencies deserving honorable mention. The prizes will be awarded to the agency, not the individiual submitting the website.
In addition, one "diamond in the rough" website will receive a prize for technical assistance for web design (all websites entered are eligible for this prize).
We will also be showcasing the winning websites at the National Conference on Rural & Intercity Bus Transportation (RIBTC) in Breckenridge, CO, September 30 to October 3, 2018, as well as on our own website.
To learn more about how you can improve your website, as well as develop a marketing plan and utilize other strategies for building ridership, awareness, and community support, visit our Marketing Transit Toolkit.
Don't already have a website? Use this as an incentive to get started!

Instructional videos walk you through the process and we have Technical Support available to assit you with questions along the way.
