Car Free Day

21 Oct Car Free Day

Car Free Day is a free international event celebrated every September 22 in which people are encouraged to get around without driving alone in cars and instead ride a train, bus, bicycle, carpool, vanpool, subway, or walk. To participate, it was encouraged for people in the Washington Metropolitain area to fill out a pledge form and go car free or car-lite (carpool, vanpool, etc.) on Saturday, September 21 through Monday, September 23, 2019.

Car Free Day is organized in various cities throughout the world in different ways, but with the common goal of reducing the number of cars on the streets. The benefit to greater society is a day with less traffic congestion, a greener environment and reduced gasoline demand. Today, Car Free Day includes celebrations in 46 countries and over 2,000 cities.
