According to transportation experts, EmX is one of the best transit systems in the country. Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy and Springfield Mayor Christine Lundberg were honored Tuesday for their work on the bus rapid transit line.
“We’re really excited about this award. We’re really excited to recognize Eugene and Springfield for the tough political decisions that they’ve made to build this system,” said Annie Weinstock, Transportation Surveyor.
The institute was particularly impressed with the implementation of separate bus lanes for EmX buses.
