40 Under 40 Awards

Recognizing 40 TDM Professionals Under the Age of 40

Every year at the TDM Forum, ACT recognizes a group of young professionals with its 40 Under 40 Awards. These awards are given to ambitious leaders working to find creative solutions to improve the quality of life of all commuters and the livability of communities, and developing TDM programs that shift behavior. Transportation affects everyone, and these inspiring individuals are creating a better journey for everyone.

We look forward to recognizing this year's 40 Under 40 recipients during our awards ceremony and reception on November 15th at the TDM Forum.
