The Marshalltown Municipal Transit team was recognized with an Award of Excellence by Region 7 of the Federal Transit Administration at a recent conference.  This award comes after the Iowa Public Transit Association recognized Kevin Pigors, Transit Administrator, and Marshalltown Municipal Transit for the same achievement earlier this year.  The award comes after a growth in ridership of more than 9,000 riders between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018.  This was the highest percentage increase in ridership of rural transit providers at 11%.  This change comes after a team from Iowa State University helped identify areas where gaps in service existed through the use of data.  However, Pigors, was quick to act to areas where he felt Marshalltown Municipal Transit could do more to offer services to the public.
