Larry Ham named C-TRAN

Larry Ham, C-TRAN operations planning supervisor, has been chosen as 2007 Employee-of-the-Year, reports C-TRAN executive director/CEO Jeff Hamm.

Ham, who has been with C-TRAN since 1994, was cited for his work in helping implement the most far-reaching service changes in the transit agency’s history. Ham was responsible for the closure of the 7th Street Transit Center in downtown Vancouver and the subsequent outreach program with downtown merchants and the public.

Ham last year was named Employee-of-the-Month following the successful work he did in opening up C-TRAN’s shuttle service to the Amphitheater at Clark County.

Over six percent of concert goers used the service, which resulted in eliminating then frequent I-5 traffic slowdowns.
