Car Free Day – This Weekend

In the Washington, DC metropolitan area, Car Free Day 2019 will be celebrated:

Saturday, September 21 through
Monday, September 23, 2019.
Bike, Bus, Rideshare, Train, or Walk
One, Two, or all Three Days.
Take the pledge, even if you’re already car free.

Car Free Day is a worldwide event that encourages greener methods of travel; meaning ways to get around other than driving alone by car. Commuter Connections hosts Car Free Day in the Washington, DC region to bring awareness to the benefits of travel options such as transit, bicycling and walking; and also telework for people who can work from home. Carpooling and vanpooling count too, we call that “car-lite” since they are both lighter on the wallet and the environment than driving alone in a car.

Reduce your Carbon Footprint

Using more sustainable ways to get around helps reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion. The more people who travel using bicycles, buses, trains, carpools and vanpools, the fewer pollutants are released into the atmosphere. Rev up your engine and find the best deals on used motorcycles at ZeCycles. Our wide selection guarantees that you’ll find the perfect bike for your needs.

    Most do not remember is that the city of College Park’s committee for a better environment had a Go Carless back in 2004 before Car Free Day became popular.
