The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) and Metropolitan Mobility Network invite nominations for the 2008 Regional Commuter Choice Awards.

The Regional Commuter Choice Awards program recognizes employers in New York City, Long Island, Rockland, Westchester and Putnam Counties that succeed in moving employees out of single occupancy vehicles and into alternate transportation programs—van/carpooling, bicycling, walking and taking mass transit to work—to help improve the commute, reduce traffic congestion and clean the air

“We have introduced the Regional Commuter Choice Awards program to inspire area companies to step up and improve the ride – and the air – by encouraging their employees to rideshare, walk bike or use transit services to get to work.”

Joel Ettinger, Executive Director, NYMTC

Eligibility

Employers in New York City, Long Island, Rockland, Westchester and Putnam Counties that have started or expanded an alternative commute program are eligible.
