BURLINGAME, CA– WeDriveU, the leader in shuttle solutions for workplaces and campuses, took top honors in the Association for Commuter Transportation’s 2022 Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Excellence Awards. WeDriveU received ACT’s Transportation Provider award in a ceremony at the TDM Forum with winners in its Employer, University, Metropolitan Planning Organization, Municipality, Innovation & Technology, Advocacy and Leadership categories.
Selected by ACT’s Executive Committee, winners were highlighted as “meritorious examples of exemplary leadership and practice of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) to deploy, advocate for, or create policies and programs that aim to improve the efficiency and equity of our transportation systems and the quality of life for their communities.”
ACT’s Transportation Provider category recognizes organizations and service providers moving millions of commuters daily with buses, vans and bikes. ACT said many are privately-operated systems that expand the reach of public transportation, making sustainable options accessible and affordable and increasing the efficiency of our transportation systems.

“This year’s recipients have proved that TDM is the keystone of any strategy that improves transportation options for commuters, livability for communities, and sustainability for the world,” said David Straus, ACT Executive Director. “Their dedication and commitment to the field of TDM has not gone unnoticed, and it is an honor to recognize them in person in a room full of their peers. I look forward to the future that our recipients will create and applaud their achievements once more.”
