Valley Metro celebrates Clean Air Champions at 36th Annual Awards
Valley commuters and organizations were recognized for their efforts in improving our air quality at the 36th annual Clean Air Campaign Awards ceremony on October 20th.
The event, held at the Omni Tempe Hotel at ASU in Tempe, AZ, honored the efforts of eco-friendly commuters who chose alternative modes of transportation, such as carpooling, bicycling, or using public transit instead of making single-occupancy vehicle trips.
