BOSTON, MA — With 95% staff participation on average and 98% logging "green" commutes, MDS was recognized as the Green Streets Initiative's 2017 Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge winner. Our firm is proud of our active commuting culture and enthusiastically supports sustainable transportation options in our communities.

The annual Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge is a friendly competition among employers in the Boston and Cambridge, MA area to highlight green commuting participation. The Challenge takes place once a month, from April through October. Walking, bicycling, using mass transit, and even carpooling are all considered "green" by the Green Streets Initiative.

Fundamentally, Walk/Ride Day is a recurring opportunity to think about—and often to explore—more environmentally friendly and healthy commuting options. Participants range from architectural design firms and consulting companies to municipalities and banks.
