The Clean Air Campaign Names Downtown TMA Platinum Partners
A total of 130 metro Atlanta employers and property managers are being recognized for the results they achieved with employee commute programs that reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality. The Clean Air Campaign and the region’s transportation management associations (TMA) announce their inaugural list of Platinum Partners, acknowledging employers and property managers whose employees and tenants use alternatives to driving alone for at least 20 percent of their commute trips, which helps reduce air pollution.
Downtown TMA Platinum Partners include: Adam M. Goodman Standing Chapter 13 Trustee, Chik-fil-A, Cousins Properties Incorporated - American Cancer Society Center, GeorgiaForward, Georgia Legal Services Program, HKS, Intelliteach, Maximus- Georgia Childcare & Parent Services, Maximus- Georgia Families, Omni Hotel at CNN Center, Parkway Realty - Peachtree Center, Portman Holdings, LLC - SunTrust Plaza, and Zipcar.
“By providing opportunities for employees to carpool, vanpool, ride transit, telework, bicycle or walk, these organizations demonstrate the positive impact they can have on traffic and the air we breathe,” said Clean Air Campaign Executive Director Tedra Cheatham. “Commute alternatives can yield cost savings for workplaces and improve employee morale, in addition to helping the environment. Taking advantage of these programs is a smart move, and the Partners on this list are in good company,” Cheatham added.
The Clean Air Campaign and affiliated local TMAs work closely with more than 1,600 employers across Georgia to create customized commute options programs for their employees. Services available at no cost include: on-site program development, worksite assessment, program support through transportation fairs, marketing tools, training seminars and networking programs.
