Hamilton, OH, October 5, 2023 – The Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) is thrilled to announce its receipt of the prestigious Ohio Auditor of State Award for the fiscal year 2022, a recognition that attests to the agency’s commitment to impeccable accounting practices. The award was presented by Ryan Holiday, Southwest Regional Liaison for Ohio Auditor of State Keith Faber.

The Ohio Auditor of State Award is a coveted distinction conferred upon organizations that exemplify the highest financial transparency and accountability standards. BCRTA has emerged as one of the top performers in the state, with only 6% of the 600 audited entities earning this accolade.
