About the Award
If your organization encourages employees and customers to use alternative transportation modes, we want to recognize and celebrate those efforts! Earn bragging rights among your peers for being one of the region’s top organizations for supporting green commuting.
NOACA, in partnership with Sustainable Cleveland and Cleveland 2030 District, presents the 2017 Commuter Choice Awards. Our goal is to have Northeast Ohio organizations of all shapes and sizes take action by supporting employee health and more sustainable forms of transportation. Participating organizations are eligible to win great prizes and recognition at a special event in the fall.
