Learn about regional programs in northeastern Ohio for individuals and businesses to help reduce our carbon output from transportation.

This panel discussion will explore alternative transportation options and why cities should focus on reducing commuter emissions. Cleveland's air quality is one of the worst in the nation, according to the National American Lung Association. Come learn how you and your company can make a positive change in Cleveland.

Representatives from Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) will discuss a new platform that will help commuters make effective choices. We'll hear from last year's Commuter Challenge winner and how their employees continue to make a positive impact.
