We are grateful to the Solano Napa Commuter Information (SNCI) for this recognition! We would like to extend special thanks to Ms. Judy Leaks, Solano Transportation Authority Program Division Manager, and Kristina Holden, SNCI Customer Service Representative and personally presented the rewards and certificates last July 29, 2014.
 
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.
