SRTC Gets CTR Champion Award

Congratulations to the folks at SRTC who find another way to get to work other than driving alone. We were nominated recently for a Governor's Commute Smart Award. And while we didn't win, we did get this great "CTR Champion" trophy.

The Commute Smart Awards recognize innovation and dedication by communities, businesses, agencies and workplace transportation coordinators as they promote ridesharing and other alternatives to driving alone. SRTC was nominated for our work with the Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) program to promote their efforts countywide, and our trip reduction efforts within our own office. We may have a small staff, but 9 of our 11 staff members participate in CTR.
CTR is open to anyone and you can win some pretty cool prizes just for finding other ways to get to school or work than driving alone. You can check it out at www.mycommute.org.
