The Clean Air Council of Philadelphia has chosen the University of Pennsylvania as the Clean Commute Employer of the Year! In 2014, Cleaner Commute Philadelphia launched the Clean Air Commute Awards to highlight the efforts of Philadelphia-area commuters and employers who go the extra mile for sustainable commuting. The award was presented at the annual Run for Clean Air on April 9 to Brian Manthe of Business Services and Dan Garofalo of FRES, who accepted on behalf of the University.

This past January the University announced an initiative to reimburse a portion of their out-of-pocket commuting expenses to full-time employees who bike to work.
