City of Dubuque Director of Transportation Services Candace Eudaley-Loebach was awarded “Transit Manager of the Year” by the Iowa Department of Transportation at an annual awards banquet co-sponsored by the Iowa Public Transit Association & the Iowa DOT.
Eudaley-Loebach has managed Dubuque’s public transit system since 2013.
Each year at the Iowa Public Transit Association Conference and Annual Meeting, the Iowa DOT recognizes one regional transit system and one urban transit system for the ratio of change in ridership compared to the change in operating costs. Iowa DOT also recognized an individual transit manager for contributions to the improvement of public transit in Iowa. Transit systems from Bettendorf, Davenport, and Dubuque were honored for their accomplishments during the 2017 fiscal year.
According to Iowa DOT Transit Programs Administrator Ryan Ward, “Candace has a great vision for the future of public transit in the city of Dubuque and the state of Iowa. She is always accurate and consistent regarding reporting, statistics, and deadlines. In her tenure as The Jule’s transit director, she has led several projects to construct modern and efficient transportation facilities that not only aid the riders of The Jule and the Burlington Trailways and Lamers intercity bus services, but also improve the look and functionality of downtown Dubuque.”
Dubuque’s Jule Transit provides a safe, timely, and comfortable mode of transportation for citizens to and from their destinations. The Jule offers standard bus routes throughout the community and door-to-door transportation service for elderly and disabled passengers.
