Toll Excellence Awards

About

IBTTA’s Toll Excellence Awards recognize the very best projects and programs the international tolling industry has to offer. Each year, we celebrate IBTTA toll agency/operator and private sector members whose creative, innovative and positive programs set a new standard of excellence. By providing wide recognition for a job well done, the Toll Excellence Awards speed up the transmission of new ideas and emerging practices throughout the industry and to the driving public.

The Toll Excellence Award Call for Submissions is posted in the spring of each year. Winners are announced in the summer and awards are presented at the Annual Meeting & Exhibition in the fall of the same year. The winner of the President's Award is kept under wraps until the Annual Meeting. You must be an IBTTA member in good standing to be eligible for consideration.

The 2021 Toll Excellence Awards: Projects Revealed session will be held during the 89th Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Anaheim, CA on the afternoon of October 11, 2021.  This session will be live-streamed for Virtual Meeting registrants. The President's Award winner will be announced during the Annual Meeting.


Congratulations to our 2021 Winners!
