More on Car Free Day

Car Free Day is a free international event celebrated every September 22nd. People are encouraged to get around without driving alone in cars and instead ride a train, bus, bicycle, carpool, vanpool, subway, or walk. For those that can work from home, telework also counts. Car Free Day is open to all people in the Washington metropolitan area. To participate in this fun and worthwhile event, fill out the pledge form, then go car free or car-lite (carpool, vanpool). Once you pledge, you receive special promotions and are entered into a free raffle to win great prizes!

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.

Help make Car Free Day a great success. Take the free pledge today!
