2018CommuterChoiceLogoEach 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. 

NOACA has partnered with the Sustainable Cleveland and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) to sponsor the 2018 Commuter Choice Awards. In 2018, 29 organizations with more than 95,000 employees participated in the Awards. Winners were announced on September 20, 2018 at the Sustainable Cleveland Summit.

  • Gold: Century Cycles
  • Silver: Cleveland Museum of Natural History & Case Western Reserve University
