Biennial Transportation Awards
Celebrating excellence in motion
Submitted By MTC
The Metropolitan Transportation Commission's (MTC) Transportation Awards recognize people and organizations that have made extraordinary contributions to the way people get around in the Bay Area each day. For more than three decades, MTC has recognized day-to-day and long-term efforts that improve transportation in the region.
The MTC Award, with its handsome wood base and movable bearing, is 6" tall and 3" wide. The bearing, laser-engraved with the winner's name, is a universal symbol of motion.
Winners are selected by a jury representing MTC and members of the public. MTC typically recognizes:
Transportation employees who excel at their jobs and go beyond and above the call of duty or have shown long-term, steadfast leadership in their profession;
Innovative activities that promote more efficient use of the transportation network;
Citizens or organizations that have made significant efforts to inform and educate the public about transportation issues;
Successful efforts to improve transit service and encourage the use of alternatives to driving alone;
A person or organization whose efforts have resulted in significant improvement in transportation services for the elderly or persons with disabilities;
Extraordinary accomplishments in the field of community service, volunteerism, advocacy, leadership or minority affairs.
