Saving Money and the Environment RTD Hybrids

Since 2006, RTD’s hybrid buses have:

  • Driven 2.4 million miles

  • Used nearly 200,000 fewer gallons than the buses they replaced

  • Saved RTD over $583,000 in fuel costs (at $3.00/gallon)

  • Produced up to 90% less emissions than diesel-only buses

Recent Accomplishments

The better RTD is, the better our community is, and we're doing so much of which I'm proud:

  • back-to-back years of double-digit ridership increases

  • off-the-hook ridership on our new BRT route, the first in San Joaquin County

  • our use of hybrid buses to reduce emissions AND operating costs

    Nobody can accomplish this much alone.

    Great results require great people!

RTD’s Internship Programs—Before and After

    • Filing, sorting, and some ride checking

    • Sometimes working on special projects

  • Mary Ann Collier, RTD’s Director of Human Resources and Chair of APTA’s Human Resource Committee, and

    Gloria Salazar, RTD’s AGM/CFO (recently participated in International Study Mission on Workforce Development)

    changed RTD’s program to make it a more valuable experience for interns

Beyond Internship Programs—Creating a Culture of Learning Within Your Organization

Look for Untapped Talent Within your Agency

  • APTA Transit CEO’s Conference--Coach Operator to CEO? It is possible?

  • Employees as Students—Communication between instructors and Transit CEOs

    Make an investment in Employees—it is not only an investment in them, but also in your organization and the industry

  • Plan $$$ in your Budget--Career Development and Tuition Reimbursement

  • Learning is a lifelong journey

    • Don’t let yourself or your employees get stuck in a rut

      Don’t underestimate the value of APTA, CTA, and CalACT

  • Attendance at conferences

  • Programs, Materials, Committees, and Networks

  • Webinars

  • Websites—a wealth of information

    Provide Special Projects and Assignments
