CAR FREE DAY
Car Free Day is observed annually on September 22.
Take the bus. Walk. Ride a bike. Stay home. But whatever you do, don’t travel by car on this day. As a way to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, promote mass transit, cycling, and walking, This Day was developed based on regular car free days that have been a long-standing practice in Europe and Scandinavia.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Get through the day without using your car. Use #CarFreeDay to post on social media.
The Environmental Transportation Association set the first European Car Free Day in 2000.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
