On Friday, the deadline to nominate the next Public Transport Authority of the Year for this year's Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards (EVIEs) will slam shut.
Following on from The Mayor of London & Transport for London’s Special Recognition Award in the category last year, we’re looking for regions that have gone above and beyond in the rollout of their electric vehicle infrastructure.
Who should enter?
The Public Transport Authority of the Year category celebrates the successes of local authority transport strategies in their specific regions. These are restricted to those in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
Nominations should include news of the authority’s track record in managing EV uptake and adoption, its EV infrastructure track record, how the authority has engaged with both consumers and the EV sector and any investments it has made into the space.
In particular, special credence will be given to those actions taken between 2 September 2020 and the nominations deadline of 27 August 2021.
