Industry Peers Vote for Winner

Seven transportation agencies competed for the award during the 2018 AgileAssets International Users Conference (IUC). Each agency presented an overview of its nominated project, and IUC attendees used a mobile app to vote anonymously for the winner. Attendees included 166 transportation industry leaders from 30 public and private organizations worldwide. Votes from 128 attendees determined the winning project.
