In 2002, our program was honored to receive a Diamond Award for Comprehensive Marketing of its employee rideshare program from a coalition of leading Southern California rideshare organizations. The award was presented by co-sponsors Southern California Rideshare (the nation's largest commute assistance agency and a division of the Southern California Association of Governments); the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Association; and the Ventura County Transportation Commission. This marked the fourth year for the Diamond Awards, presented to recognize outstanding businesses and individuals that keep Southern California moving.
LAWA's Rideshare Program previously garnered a number of other major honors. These include two Diamond Awards in 2001 for Innovation and Marketing, a Diamond Award in 2000 for Marketing, the 1998 Southern California Association of Government's Award for Excellence, the "Clean Air Award" in both 1997 and 1990 from the South Coast Air Quality Management District, and the "Governor's Transportation Award" from the state in 1990.
In addition, Los Angeles World Airports is nationally recognized as a Charter Member of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Best Workplaces for Commuters Program. We are proud to be part of such an elite group meeting THE National Standard of Excellence in commuter benefits!"
