Steve Bandarra (Sustainability Office) recently won a Massachusetts Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Spotlight Award for Excellence in Commuter Options.

In addition, Worcester State University received one of ECO’s Leadership Awards for the second consecutive year. WSU was one of over 60 employers recognized at the leadership level for their efforts in promoting active, healthy, and sustainable travel options.

The Baker Administration celebrated more than 220 Massachusetts businesses, colleges, and universities at the sixth annual Massachusetts ECO Awards ceremony. This year’s event recognized the largest number of employers to date.

The event, held at historic Fenway Park, brought together businesses and institutions from across Massachusetts that provide innovative programs and resources to encourage employees to travel by public transit, carpool, vanpool, bicycling, walking, or even teleworking.

The ECO Awards are hosted by MassDOT, in collaboration with MassRIDES, the Statewide Travel Options Program and MassCommute, the Massachusetts Council of Transportation Management Associations.
