This award honors outstanding leaders, advocates and organizations that made significant contributions to improving and encouraging bicycle transportation in South Central PA.

Commuter Services of PA earned  this award because of all the work they have done to promote cycling throughout the region. They offer special incentives during bike month, the Free Ride Home program that helps out cyclists who have emergencies and cannot ride back home, and tips on safety and bike commuting. They also provide resources for employers who want to encourage active transportation modes for their employees.  In addition, Laura Heilman, the Vanpool, Bicycle & Pedestrian Outreach Manager for Commuter Services of PA, is spearheading the BSCPA Bicycle Safety Initiative that encourages the sharing of successful programs throughout the PennDOT District 8 area.
