Are You Up For a Change?
Drop Your Car Keys for a Day!
Car Free Day is traditionally held on September 22. In the National Capital Region (Washington DC metropolitan area), Car Free Day 2019 will be observed on:
Saturday, September 21 through Monday, September 23, 2019.
Participate on either day or all of them, it’s up to you!
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.
