The Commuter Choice Awards is an opportunity to recognize programs and projects that improve commuter mobility in the Twin Cities. Employers, property managers, building owners, public entities, nonprofit organizations, and individuals can nominate themselves or be nominated by an associate.
There are six categories of awards; they are:
- Employer of the Year
- Building Owner/Management Company of the Year
- Organization of the Year
- Government Entity of the Year
- Commuter Champion of the Year
- Commuter Benefits Coordinator of the Year
Employers, building owners/management companies, organizations, government entities and individuals either complete their own nomination form or are nominated by an employee, tenant, community member or local transportation management organization (TMO). TMO Outreach Specialists are always available to assist nominees in completing their form.
When all forms are submitted, a carefully-selected panel of transportation and human resources professionals, public officials and advocates evaluates each nomination’s clarity, creativity and outcomes. Scores are assigned to each nomination; the nomination that receives the highest score within a category is considered the winner in that category.
The 2020 Commuter Choice Awards will be held in the Johnson Great Room at McNamara Alumni Center, located at the University of Minnesota (200 Oak Street S.E, Minneapolis, MN 55455) on Friday, May 1, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. The awards are sponsored by Metro Transit and the region’s Transportation Management Organizations (TMOs).
