TALLAHASSEE, FL — The Florida Public Transportation Association (FPTA) recently inducted Elizabeth "Liz" Stutts, VHB Transit Development Lead, into the 2023 Hall of Fame during a ceremony that recognized her significant and lasting impact advancing public transportation in Florida. This is the highest honor that FPTA bestows. Only 22 individuals and three women have been recognized over the organization’s more than 40-year history.

Over her career of 30-plus years, she has spearheaded numerous projects throughout the Southeast, navigated funding opportunities for multiple federal, state, and local government agencies, and leveraged relationships with stakeholders for project success. Across the entire state, Stutts has advanced transportation opportunities, advocated for sustainable infrastructure solutions, and mentored countless professionals in the field.

“Liz is so deserving of this honor. In the public transportation industry, dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment to improving the lives of transit commuters often go unnoticed,” said Matt Lamb, Southeast Regional Manager. “She brings an immense amount of insight to clients about how federal legislation, economic, and social issues are impacting transit projects across the state.”

Prior to joining VHB, Stutts served as State Transit Manager at the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and led the statewide development of policies to implement significant transit programs by the department’s District Offices. At VHB, she is helping the University of Florida improve transit services on campus; enhancing the FDOT reThink Your Commute program with employer mobility initiatives that promote alternatives to driving; and supporting the FDOT District 5 Modal Development Office with transit, intermodal, and project oversight that strengthens transportation infrastructure for future generations.
