NOACA’s Commuter Choice Awards
Supporting choices for commuters is a win-win. Use of alternative modes of transportation saves commuters money, relieves congestion, improves air quality, benefits health and reduces stress. If your organization encourages employees to use alternative transportation modes (including public transportation, carpooling, bicycling, walking, telecommuting, and flexible work weeks), NOACA recognizes these efforts through its Commuter Choice Awards.
Participating organizations can receive a Gold, Silver or Bronze rating based on the percentage of employees who engage in environmentally friendly commuting alternatives and on the organization’s incentives, programs, policies and investments that support commute alternatives. Each year, NOACA also rewards one organization with top honors for being a regional leader for encouraging alternative transportation choices.
