Car Free Day is an international event celebrated every September in which people are encouraged to get around without cars and instead ride a train, bus or bicycle, carpool with others, take the subway, walk or telecommute. Car Free Day is celebrated in over 2,000 cities in 40 countries around the world.
Car Free Day will be celebrated in different ways with the common goal of taking cars off the road. Using cars less by taking advantage of alternative transportation modes will build awareness, reduce traffic, conserve energy, reduce harmful emissions, reduce parking problems and save money!
