TRANSPORTATION ALL-STAR PROGRAM
Become a Transportation All-Star!
Get the recognition you deserve and gain award winning status by becoming a goDCgo Transportation All-Star! This program recognizes DC organizations (Employers, Hotels, Residential Properties, and K-12 Schools) for their commitment to sustainable transportation. Based on the sustainable programs you have in place, like educating residents about their travel options in and around the District and providing them with amenities that help them to travel sustainably, you can earn a designation ranging from bronze to platinum and receive special perks and honors.
Before you begin making decisions on what transportation amenities to provide, determine the overall transportation needs of your residents.

The District of Columbia is attracting new residential, commercial, and retail development, and redevelopment at an unprecedented pace. While this activity has many benefits, it also increases traffic to/from and within our nation's capital. To enhance the quality of life for residents, commuters, and visitors, the District issues zoning orders that require buildings to implement sustainable transportation services and programs that reduce the number of single-occupancy vehicles (SOV), also known as Transportation Demand Management (TDM).
