ANTIOCH, CA — Tri Delta Transit’s CEO, Jeanne Krieg, was honored to receive California Transit Association’s distinguished award Small Operators Committee Transit Professional of the Year 2021.

The California Transit Association’s (CTA) gives this award to an outstanding individual who has provided strong leadership and vision to a California Transit Association Small Operator agency or made a notable contribution that benefits public transit in general.

“What makes our CEO such a strong leader is not only her passion for the industry and vision for innovation, but also her focus on providing ultimate customer service for our riders,” says Board of Directors Chair Ken Grey. “In addition, she takes as much care of the staff as she does the riders, with an open-door policy, benefits and morale programs, as well as providing training support and personal touches that result in very low turnover.”

Jeanne Krieg encourages sharing of resources and information, which she does herself by serving on the CTA Executive Committee, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) executive committee, and the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Oversight and Project Selection Committee, not to mention being active on many sub-committees.  Her many contributions to the transit industry over her 30-year career have benefitted many other agencies and the industry as a whole.
