2018 Commuter Choice Awards

 Commuter Choice Logo




Each year, NOACA and its partners sponsor the NEO Commuter Choice Awards, a friendly competition that recognizes and rewards employers who encourage employees to choose alternatives to drive-alone commutes. Smart commuting benefits your company, your employees, and our region. If your company already promotes smart commuting, here’s your chance to be recognized, earn bragging rights, and showcase your commitment to sustainability. And if you’re interested in starting or improving a smart commute program, the Commuter Choice Awards will help you learn more.

NOACA has partnered with the Sustainable Cleveland and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) to sponsor the 2018 Commuter Choice Awards. The application period for the 2018 program is now closed. We appreciate all organizations that submitted applications and went the extra mile to participate in the month-long Clean Air Challenge on Gohio Commute. Award winners will be announced at the 2018 Sustainability Summit in Cleveland in September.

  • Reduce parking demand at your workplace
