The Transportation Agency for Monterey County initiated the Transportation Excellence Awards program in 2002 to show its appreciation to the local community for its outstanding efforts to improve transportation in Monterey County. The program was modeled after similar transportation awards programs in Santa Cruz County and the San Francisco Bay area. Awards categories include: individuals, businesses/groups, programs, projects and services.
Examples of potential awards are:
- Transportation employees who excel at their jobs and go the extra mile to promote the most efficient use of the transportation system.
- Innovative programs that promote more efficient use of the local transportation network.
- Citizens or organizations that have made significant efforts to inform and educate the public about transportation issues.
- Successful efforts to improve transit services and encourage the use of smart commute options as alternatives to driving alone through the Go831 Smart Commute Program.
Nomination forms are accepted throughout the year, but an official call for nominations will take place in October. The Transportation Agency for Monterey County Executive Committee makes the awards selections in January, based on those individuals, groups/businesses, or organizations that have made extraordinary contributions to the way people get around in Monterey County. The awards ceremony is held at the beginning of the January TAMC Board meeting.
Nomination forms can be submitted by filling out the nomination form online or by downloading the form and sending it to the Transportation Agency via email, fax or mail.Transportation Excellence Awards Nomination Form 2021.pdf
