Top Banana Awards

What is The Top Banana Award

RiderShip for the Masses presents their Top Banana Award to an individual or organization who make a positive change to public transit in the Sacramento Area. This includes bike and ped. 

Normally,  the award is presented every two years, however, we have identified an organization who made a difference this year, and will present the award  July 2017.

The award includes a "top banana" Trophy and Certificate.
