  1. Pro Motion

    This campaign was a 2014 John and Jane Public Competition winner. From TRB Committee ADA 60: The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is actively working to set the context for what freight is—and how freight and multimodal initiatives are important to Florida’s economy and quality of life—through a public education and awareness campaign, titled Pro Motion. Pro Motion is progressing in effectively communicating freight needs and issues to the public, while stimulating stakeholder involvement in the process of moving Florida forward. The FDOT and partners have implemented the Freight Moves Florida logistics portal to serve as a platform for the Pro Motion outreach. Created through a partnership, Enterprise Florida, Workforce Florida, the Florida Chamber of Commerce, and the FDOT, the Freight Moves Florida logistics portal serves as a one-stop-shop for Florida logistics. Pro Motion is being involved, stimulating partnerships, and encouraging outreach.

  2. Norfolk Southern Exhibition Car

    This project won an honorable mention in the 2014 John and Jane Public Competition. From TRB Committee ADA 60: Norfolk Southern’s showcase on wheels, the Exhibition Car is a rolling museum of modern transportation technology. It has served as a goodwill ambassador for Norfolk Southern and the rail industry. In three decades of service as an Exhibition Car, NS 27 has opened its doors to more than 1.5 million people in some 300 cities where the car has toured. The exhibit car features the following: Displays inside the car illustrate how people and technology support freight safely. Locomotive simulator provides visitors a chance to see life from an engineer’s point of view. Mock-up of a locomotive combines computer animation with realistic controls – complete with horn, throttle, and brake – to demonstrate the dangers of trespassing on railroad property. Train-dispatching center uses video presentations and a lighted system board to portray movements on an imaginary operating division, and illustrate how people in a dispatching office – the nerve center of the railroad – manage hundreds of trains daily to provide safe and efficient transportation services.
