bart.gov wins "Best Government Site" in 2014 Blue Drop Awards
The BART website (www.bart.gov) has been selected "Best Government Site" in the prestigious 2014 Blue Drop Awards, an international competition honoring projects that push the boundaries of open source Drupal, a web content management system used by numerous .gov sites including NASA.gov and whitehouse.gov.
In November 2013, BART rebuilt its website from the ground up using open source Drupal. "We believe in using and contributing to open source software as a way of making it easier for agencies like ours to share solutions and improve services for the communities we serve," said Ravi Misra, Chief Information Officer at BART.
The Blue Drop Awards is an independent, community-nominated, community-voted event that aims to publicly recognize excellent individuals, companies and projects that have pushed the limits and maximized the capabilities of Drupal, the open source content management system.
This latest achievement adds to other bart.gov honors including a Webby Award from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Science, a Grand Prize AdWheel Award from the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), and a place in the elite publication “365: AIGA Year in Design” from the American Institute of Graphic Arts.
