Car Free Day — Will you Drop It for a Day?

WHAT IS 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. For those that have the ability to 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, just fill out the pledge form, then go car free or car-lite (carpool, vanpool) on

Friday, September 21  and/or  Saturday, September 22, 2018;

participate for one or both days, it’s up to you!

Once you pledge, you receive special promotions and are entered into a free raffle to win great prizes! Already car free? That’s great, and since you’re doing the right thing, you also get the same chance to win prizes when you fill out the pledge form.

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.
