NEW YORK—The Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) arts program has won some awards from a national transportation group.

The MTA’s Arts for Transit and Urban Design, the program that commissions visual art for subway cars and station walls, received an AdWheel award from the American Public Transportation Association for its art cards and poster program.

The AdWheel awards are for communications and marketing efforts and were handed out at the group’s annual meeting at the beginning of the month.

The MTA program won a grand prize in the print category for systems with more than 20 million annual passenger trips.

Another MTA offering, a mobile app that shows people how to get to the various works of art in subway stations, took first place in a subcategory for mobile apps.
