October 4: This Date in Los Angeles Transportation History

2006:  The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority announces that Metro has been honored as not only the first public transportation agency, but the first public agency of any kind, to ever be featured in the international publication, Communication Arts.  The article states that Metro’s Design Studio “might be the country’s top design studio / ad agency that’s part of a government agency.”

The article can be found here, and more information can be found in the October 4, 2006 Board of Directors communications memo.
