Each year, the Transportation Agency presents the Transportation Excellece Awards to honor local community members for their outstanding efforts to improve transportation in Monterey County. The awards ceremony held during the TAMC Board meeting in January recognizes individuals, businesses/groups, programs or projects for their contributions.
Examples of potential awards include but are not limited to:
- Transportation employees who excel at their jobs and go the extra mile to improve our transportation system.
- Innovative activities 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.
The call for nominations are announced in October. Nominations are due in December and the awards recipients are selected by the Transportation Agency's Executive Committe at its Janauary meeting; followed by the award presentation at the TAMC Board of Directors meeting later that month.
