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 world.

To participate in this fun and worthwhile event, all you need to do is go car free or go car-lite on Thursday, September 22. It’s that simple!

Already car free? That’s great, and since you’re doing the right thing, you should spread the word on social networks and invite all your friends and relatives to go Car-free today.

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 1,500 cities in 40 countries.

Help make Car Free Day on Thursday September 22, 2016 a great success!
