In the roadeo, bus operators are judged by their ability to successfully maneuver around 11 obstacles within seven minutes. Operators are also judged on personal appearance, smoothness of operations, their knowledge of the Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines, safety habits, and how they perform a pre-trip bus inspection. The guidelines and judging criteria are specified by APTA.
Both Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) Acting Director Al Roshdieh and MCDOT Transit Services Division Chief Carolyn Biggins were on hand to present the awards.
