Transit Professional of the YearDavid Peckler Receives Honors From CASTA
David Peckler, TOSV Transit Director, was recently named the Transit Professional of the Year at the Colorado Association of Transit Agencies (CASTA) 36th Annual Colorado Transit Awards ceremony in Grand Junction, CO. 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 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. Congratulations, David!
