About the Awards

 Green Your Commute


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 the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority and Sustainable Cleveland, presents the 2018 Commuter Choice Awards.
