Car Free Day is Tuesday, September 22, 2015. It’s 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 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 greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion. The more people who travel using bicycles, buses, trains, carpools and vanpools, the less pollutants are released into the atmosphere.
