Commuter Choice Awards Event!

Wednesday, April 8, 2015
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: Union Depot – St Paul

Join us as we recognize employers, organizations and individuals for their innovative solutions that move people and improve the region’s quality of life.

This year’s event features enhanced opportunities to network with other organizations and learn about the wide range of commuter programs and services available to your workforce.

What is the Commuter Choice Awards program?

Commuter Choice Awards honor programs or initiatives that promote taking the bus or train, walking, bicycling, vanpooling, carpooling or teleworking. Awards for individuals recognize those who demonstrate a commitment for transportation options in their workplace, school or community.

We are moving the recognition event to spring so nominations can align with programs and efforts completed in 2014.
