2015 Summit Award Winners

Congratulations to all the Summit Awards Honorees!

Getting on top of our region's traffic problems is a mountain of a job! Whether it’s starting the very first vanpool at a worksite, or helping a co-worker find a carpool partner, every effort put into making a transportation program better makes a difference!  
The winners listed below were honored for their 2015 efforts at the 18th Annual Summit Appreciation Luncheon held on January 28, 2016.

The Summit Awards is sponsored by Pierce County, Pierce Transit and the Cities of DuPont, Fife, Gig Harbor, Lakewood, Puyallup, Sumner, Tacoma, and University Place.
