For immediate release
On Thursday, September 16, 2021 David Peckler was named the Transit Professional of the Year. The ceremony took place as part of the Colorado Association of Transit Agencies (CASTA) 36th Annual Colorado Transit Awards ceremony in Grand Junction, CO. CASTA is the statewide trade association representing approximately 60 transit systems throughout the state, as well as local governments, planning organizations, and the bus industry. The CASTA Awards Program recognizes the contributions of individuals and agencies in Colorado with outstanding programs or projects, or who have made notable contributions to transit.
The Transit Professional or Transit Team of the Year award is the most competitive of the annual awards. David Peckler has truly been a pioneer as one of the original Town of Snowmass Village staff members when the Village Shuttle started in 1979. In addition to being a leader for the Town, David has also been a transit leader in the state providing well-reasoned opinions and direction to other organizations including CASTA. The nomination noted that David’s strong leadership skills have been evident as he has worked to develop an outstanding transit organization. This award is especially fitting as David will be retiring this year after a remarkable career that has had far reaching impacts.
