Congratulations to all the winners and all who participated!

We would like to take this time to thank the program organizers and sponsors, the Solano Napa Commuter Info (SNCI), Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency (NCTPA) and the Bay Area Air Quality Transportation Fund for Clean Air.

A special thanks goes out to Sean Hurley, SNCI Employee Outreach Coordinator, for his great job in communicating with Colinas Farming Company participants, and kudos to our own Administrative Assistant, Maggie Robles,  for her hard work and patience in coordinating with all participants in getting their commute logs submitted to SNCI in a timely manner. 

The Napa Green Commute Challenge offer rewards for both employers and its employees by challenging them to encourage as many employees as possible to try a commute alternative (other than driving alone to work) such as carpooling, vanpooling, public transit, bicycling or walking to work. In addition to the rewards, participants save gas, money and stress on their commute. By participating, they also positively affect climate change by reducing carbon footprint and greenhouse gases.

Keep checking our website as we post photos of the Napa Green Commute Challenge awarding. Let's keep doing our job in keeping the air clean by using a commute alternative.
