TransNet Receives Air Quality Partnership Excellence Award

May 8, 2017

 

TransNet received the Air Quality Partnership Excellence Award in Spring 2017 from Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) for big steps taken to improve air quality. " TransNet reduces emissions from single occupancy vehicles while providing mobility alternatives for local residents through an array of ride options", states DVRPC.  

"As warmer weather approaches, so does the onset of ground-level ozone. High levels of ozone pose health risks for everyone, and large segments of the population are considered especially sensitive to air pollution. Fortunately, ozone levels are being monitored and the public can be alerted when levels become unhealthy. The Air Quality Partnership (AQP), a program of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, educates residents about the dangerous effects of ground-level ozone and provides air quality forecasts to the public.

To celebrate local initiatives and best practices to reduce air pollution, five organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region received 2017 Air Quality Partnership Excellence Awards. Each year, public and private institutions are honored for their efforts to improve air quality." (DVRPC)
