MITRE Honored with Excellence in Commuting Options Gold AwardApril 2018
MITRE received a 2018 Gold Award at the 8th Annual Massachusetts Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Awards for providing top-notch commuter benefits programs. The awards were presented at a ceremony on April 18 at Fenway Park in Boston.
The ECO Awards are a celebration of Massachusetts employers both large and small who have shown dedication to providing comprehensive transportation options. MITRE was recognized for our many environmentally friendly programs and options for alternative commuting, including mobile worker programs; on-campus electric vehicle charging; preferential parking for carpoolers, and shuttle services between MITRE's campus and the Alewife MBTA station. MITRE's commuter benefits program also offers a $30 subsidy and a pre-tax savings advantage for commuting costs.
The ECO awards are presented by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, MassRIDES, and MassCommute in recognition of the ways in which Massachusetts employers encourage employees to use green and sustainable transportation options. To be eligible, Massachusetts employers must be MassRIDES Employer Partners and complete a questionnaire detailing the sustainable commuting options they offer. MITRE has received ECO Awards several times in the past.
