Each year the Iowa Department of Transportation recognizes one regional and one urban transit system for improvements in ridership and cost management. The University of Iowa’s transit system CAMBUS won Most Improved Urban Transit System of the Year. The Iowa DOT awarded CAMBUS for conducting a large service expansion while maintaining effective cost controls.

"Our employees know they play an important role on our campus and this acknowledgement is a great compliment of their commitment to providing
safe, quality service," said Brian McClatchey, CAMBUS manager.

Region 10's East Central Iowa Council of Governments (ECICOG) regional transit system system in Cedar Rapids won the Most Improved Regional Transit System of the Year. Additional detail are available online via the Iowa DOT press release.
