Case Western Reserve earns 2014 Commuter Choice Award

The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency, in collaboration with the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, awarded Case Western Reserve University with a bronze 2014 Commuter Choice Award.

Commuter Choice Awards are a way to recognize companies and organizations that promote healthy, clean transportation in the region by encouraging employees to walk, bike or use public transportation for their daily commute.

NOACA asked organizations to complete a survey, gauging their support and promotion of alternative forms of transportation. Each participating organization received a numerical score based on the amenities and programs they offer. The total score determined Gold, Silver and Bronze ratings.

Case Western Reserve is among the organizations that take part in the Commuter Advantage program of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), which allows employees to purchase transit passes on a pre-tax basis, saving both the employee and employer money.
