Residents of the Washington, DC region can participate in Car Free Day on Wednesday, Sept. 22 to help promote better ways to travel - use transit, carpool/vanpool (car-lite), bike, scooter, walk or telework. Take the pledge, even if you’re already car free!
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 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.
All are welcome to take the Car Free Day pledge whether you’re a Washington DC area resident, commuter, or student. Once you take the Online Pledge, you will automatically be entered into a raffle for all sorts of great prizes. Click below and choose the travel method that fits your mobility best!
