“We are honored to recognize Colorado State University and the other recipients of ACT’s 2018 TDM Excellence Awards, recognizing them for their commitment to implementing progressive TDM programs for their employees and students,” said David Straus, ACT executive director. “The impacts of these programs improve the lives of commuters and benefit us all with more livable and sustainable communities.”

The award was accepted on Nov. 13, in Nashville, Tennessee by Dave Bradford, director of Parking and Transportation Services.
