From The Wincome Group:
The Westin Anaheim Resort has announced that their crew of over 200 workers involved in the construction of the Resort are participating in an Anaheim-rideshare program designed to reduce congestion around the Anaheim Resort during peak hours. The program, offered through the Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN), provides clean-fuel shuttles to 9.4 million people a year, both alleviating traffic and reducing the carbon footprint in the area.
The Westin Anaheim Resort is the first hotel project in Anaheim to take advantage of the ATN service to provide parking spaces and shuttles exclusively to construction workers free of charge. This arrangement is helping construction workers ease their commute through the streets of the Anaheim Resort, while making driving easier for Anaheim residents and tourists during construction.
“Being a part of the Anaheim Resort doesn’t just mean operating a hotel, it also means being a good neighbor and member of the Anaheim community” said Paul Sanford, Asset Manager for the Wincome Group, which is developing the Westin Anaheim Resort. “We’re pleased to have our crews taking advantage of ATN’s ridesharing program to get our workers from their parking location to the work site, cutting down on congestion on Anaheim’s busy city streets and doing our part to cut down on unnecessary emissions.”
Located on a Harbor Blvd. parking lot just outside the Resort Area, ATN is making available parking for Westin Anaheim Resort construction workers to park and take one of the two shuttle buses operating between the lot and the work site for two hours during both morning and afternoon shifts.
“We are so excited that the Westin Anaheim is using our services and setting the standard of providing a transportation program to construction workers” said Lynn Keller, ART rideshare coordinator. “Our buses will help reduce traffic during peak hours and will provide some down time to workers before they continue their commute.”
Once completed, the Westin Anaheim Resort will offer guests 613 rooms, and over 100 suites, ample room for meetings and high-end restaurant and retail space, including a marketplace. A rooftop bar and two luxurious pools, along with a state-of-the-art fitness center consistent with Westin’s wellness brand, will round out the amenities at the hotel. This prime location next to the Anaheim Convention Center will provide necessary accommodations and state-of-the-art technology for guests attending expos and conferences. ###
