3/26/15: Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Awards at Fenway Park

Massachusetts Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Awards

The 2015 Massachusett ECO Awards will be Held on

Thursday, March 26th at Fenway Park! 

The 5th annual Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Awards are brought to you by MassCommute, the Massachusetts Coalition of Transportation Management Associations the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), and MassRIDES, the statewide travel options program.

The ECO Awards celebrate Massachusetts employers and their efforts to reduce congestion and greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging employees to utilize green transportation options. Employers can make a huge difference by encouraging employees to travel to work by public transit, bicycling, walking or through the promotion of carpools and vanpools. 

Once again we look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of members (like you) at Fenway Park!

Who Is Invited?

The ECO Awards are open to any Massachusetts employer who is a TMA Member Company and/or MassRIDES Employer Partner, and who complete an annual questionnaire identifying the current sustainable commuter option programs their worksite offers to its employees.
Watch for your official invitation in late February.
