In 2018, Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) recognized more than 240 businesses and properties for their dedication to sustainable transportation and for their impact to Arlington, Virginia. Through more standard benefits like transit subsidies and innovative programs like hotel transportation packages, companies in Arlington are working to move more people through the County with less congestion.

Each year, ATP launches an annual program for employers, multi-family residential communities, commercial properties, hotels, and schools. Designed to encourage the implementation of transportation initiatives through community-based social marketing; employees, tenants, and guests of Arlington County benefit through improved transit use and congestion management to make commutes less stressed and more enjoyable.

This past year, 243 Champions implemented more than 400 transportation initiatives, impacting the way people travel in Arlington. Of the 243 businesses and properties celebrated in 2018, 53 have consistently been a part of the program since it began five years ago. The growing number of companies interested in becoming a Champion paired with those who join year after year speaks to the importance and impact of the program.

Below are four companies who implemented unique programs in 2018 as well as a full list of our Platinum, Gold, and Silver Level Champions.

Residence Inn Arlington Ballston | Champion since 2014

The Residence Inn Arlington Ballston understands that it’s important to incorporate transportation before a guest even arrives. To compete with other hotels and offer visitors a comprehensive experience, the Residence Inn created curated room rates for guests to choose between a Capital Bikeshare or Metro package. Each offer included two all-day passes for bikeshare or two SmarTrip cards to use for Metrorail or bus.

Smithsonian Institution, OCon&PPM | Champion since 2014

Even with a formal telework policy in place, Smithsonian Institution, Office of Contracting & Personal Property Management, wanted to ensure they were managing their telework benefit efficiently. To keep employees engaged and create an inclusive workplace for remote workers, Smithsonian Institution completed a telework management training with Arlington Transportation Partners. The training helped employees understand their role as managers of teleworking employees and how best to evaluate performance while meeting company goals.

Garfield Park (Kettler) | Champion since 2014

Located in the heart of Clarendon, Garfield Park has many transportation options available right outside its front door. The property manager at Garfield Park noticed many residents were hesitant to bike to work although they did bike often for leisure. Through the Champions program, the property manager connected with ATP to lead a bike ride for residents to help them feel more at ease biking on main roads. By showing residents the ways of city biking, the property manager has been able to turn the bike room, an existing building feature, into a well-used amenity for commuters.

3001 & 3003 Washington Boulevard (Transwestern) | Champion since 2015

3001 & 3003 Washington Boulevard understand the importance of transit accessibility. Even though they are conveniently located in Clarendon, the property managers wanted to ensure building tenants could reach their destination quickly and easily. Transwestern worked with ATP to implement geo-fenced ridehailing pick-ups through Lyft Line to encourage shared rides for tenants to move between the building, the airport, or to a destination within three miles of 3001 & 3003 Washington Boulevard.
