Zephyr Awards

The Zephyr Board presented two awards at the Zephyr Reception at the 2019 TRB Annual Meeting.

2020 Awards will be open for nominations in August (as soon as you have submitted all your TRB Annual Meeting Papers).

Outstanding Industry Contributor Award

This award shall be given to an individual who in embodying the Zephyr Principles, has selflessly contributed to the good of the industry through the body of their work.

Outstanding Industry Contributor shall be:

  • Collegial and collaborative, investing in shared technical knowledge and community assets in order to reach common goals (e.g. open access papers, code, documentation, and data);
  • Generous with their time such as investment in mentorship, community-assets, and other volunteer roles;
  • Respectful and thoughtful in their interactions; and
  • Goal-oriented towards the public good and usefulness, even if the pathway is unconventional.

Congratulations to Julie Dunbar as the inaugural recipient of this award!.

Zephyr Leadership Award

The Zephyr Leadership award shall be given to an individual who embraces the Zephyr mission of advancing rigorous transportation and land use decision-making for the public good by advocating for and supporting improved travel analysis and facilitating its implementation.

Congratulations to Joe Castiglione as the inaugural recipient of this award!.
