At this year's TDM Forum in Atlanta, GA, the Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT) will recognize a group of young professionals with its annual 40 Under 40 Awards. These awards are given to ambitious leaders working to find creative solutions to improve the quality of life of 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 10th. Click here for more information on ACT's TDM Forum.
