Arlington Transportation Partners Recognizes Transportation Champions

Arlington Transportation Partners recognized the Arlington Public Schools that participated in Champions at the School Board meeting on May 31, 2018. The 19 Champions demonstrated a commitment to staff transportation options and have increased participation through exemplary outreach and encouragement.

Champions is a program that recognizes and rewards Arlington businesses, multifamily residential properties, commercial properties, and schools that show a commitment to encouraging  the use of sustainable transportation modes, such as public transit, ridesharing, biking, and walking.

The Champions shared transportation information with staff, hosted ATP at staff meetings, supported staff in active transportation events, offered transit training, arranged active commute amenities, installed priority carpool parking, applied to be designated as Bicycle Friendly Businesses, and reduced the number of staff who drive alone to school every day. Their participation affirms that APS values sustainable, healthy transportation options to make it easier to work, live and play in Arlington County.
