Anaheim Transportation Network
The Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN) has received Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR Accreditation, a first for a U.S. transit agency. GBAC is a program of the International Sanitary Supply Association that helps organizations and businesses prepare for, respond to, and recover from biological threats, biohazard situations and real-time crises.
“Ensuring the well-being of our riders, team members and community is ATN’s top priority,” said Diana Kotler, executive director, ATN. “This accreditation confirms our commitment to minimize risks and ensure proper protocols are consistently implemented to enhance our agency’s safety. We are proud to be able to execute the gold standard of health protection measures for public transit.”
As part of the GBAC STAR program, ATN drivers and staff demonstrated correct work practices, procedures and systems are in place to prepare, respond and recover from infection diseases and biohazards. ATN joins an elite group of entities to earn the GBAC accreditation. Currently, 250 facilities have received accreditation, with more than 3,000 entities committed to accreditation in more than 80 countries.
“Everyone in the community, including ATN, is doing their part to make sure our consumers are confident that Anaheim is a safe destination to visit once they’re ready to travel again,” said Jay Burress, president and CEO, Visit Anaheim.
ATN provides public transit services in central Orange County, including in the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park and surrounding communities. Passengers can also connect to the county’s regional transit hub, ARTIC and the MetroLink system which serves riders between Ventura, Lancaster, Los Angeles, Carlsbad, Riverside, San Bernardino and other locations.
