About the Transportation Awards
MTC's Transportation Awards recognize people and organizations
who have made extraordinary contributions to the way people
get around in the Bay Area each day. For over three decades,
MTC has recognized day-to-day and long-term efforts that are
improving transportation in the region.
The MTC Award (pictured), 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.
MTC typically recognizes:
- Transportation employees who excel at
their jobs and go 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 who 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.
Winners are selected by a jury representing MTC and members of the public.
