ECO Commuter Award Winners, April 1, 2011 The Patrick-Murray Administration today recognized employers who have advanced efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging their employees to travel by public transit, carpools, vanpools, or by bicycling or walking. The Administration celebrated the efforts of more than 100 Massachusetts employer partners and members during the Massachusetts Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Awards ceremony at the State House.

MassDOT through MassRIDES, the statewide travel options program, and MassCommute, the Massachusetts Coalition of Transportation Management Associations, supports Massachusetts employers in their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing drive-alone trips to their work sites while encouraging employees to travel by public transit, carpools, vanpools, or by bicycling or walking.

The event, co-hosted by MassDOT, MassRIDES, and MassCommute, celebrated the efforts of over 100 Massachusetts employer partners and members.  Four employers were recognized for outstanding accomplishments:

  • University of Massachusetts Medical School for Marketing Excellence
  • Massachusetts General Hospital for Leadership Excellence –
  • City of Salem for Leadership Excellence – Municipality
  • Tufts Health Plan for Innovation Excellence for their contributions in providing excellence in commuter options.

The ECO Awards support GreenDOT, a comprehensive environmental responsibility and sustainability initiative of MassDOT.
