ThinkTransit Awards of Excellence recognize those that push the transit industry forward.  Quoted from their website article “ThinkTransit 2019 honors forward-looking transit achievements with Awards of Excellence“:

The Award of Excellence in Innovation recognizes groundbreaking, unique or farsighted approaches to how people use public transit. University of Toronto professor Amer Shalaby was named this year’s winner for his extensive research into transit planning and management solutions improving the performance and competitiveness of transit systems. His breakthroughs have helped transit authorities and communities in Canada and around the world create more effective and responsive transit services. Professor Shalaby notes that winning the award “shows that the work we do at the university is of value to the industry, is being appreciated by the industry and it just gives us more motivation to continue working hard to improve public transit services.” Trapeze Group is proud to be working closely with Professor Shalaby in solving transportation challenges.
