The Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT) celebrated the announcement of the 2020 40 Under 40 recipients at the annual TDM Forum, which took place virtually (watch the ceremony below). Celebrating the accomplishments of a tremendous group of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) professionals and industry leaders at its annual Forum, the awardees represent a diverse cross-section of the industry, including private sector employers, city and state governments, service providers, consultants, and nonprofits committed to solving the transportation and mobility challenges facing their communities and organizations.

“During a year that has introduced unprecedented challenges to the industry, it’s a pleasure to look to the future of TDM with this impressive group of leaders addressing transportation and mobility. The work they do makes a very real difference in the quality of life for commuters, and their creative solutions are improving the sustainability of their communities,” said ACT Executive Director David Straus.


I’d love to give a big thank you to ACT for this award.
It’s a tremendous honor, and a direct result of everything I’ve learned from my
colleagues at Livable Buckhead as well as the other outstanding
TDM professionals that are part of this organization.
- Katie Gable, Livable Buckhead

I enjoy being a TDM professional because I enjoy helping communities thrive.
- Nichole Hollis, AECOM/Georgia Commute Options
I have been very thankful for ACT and everything it has taught me.

“I am always thrilled to see the next generation embracing TDM, and excited for this group of award recipients,” said ACT President Connie McGee. “I believe we need to keep cultivating new generations to work in transportation moving TDM forward into the future. Congratulations to the recipients!”

ACT recognized its 2020 40 Under 40 TDM Professionals with a special video during the awards ceremony, sponsored by Hallcon, where attendees of the 2020 TDM Forum gathered to toast this exceptional group of emerging leaders.
