With the theme, “Put it Away. Uncar for the Day,” the Washington DC area will again celebrate Car Free Day on Monday, September 22 (during the Walk and Ride Challenge). Participants will be eligible to win prizes while joining a worldwide movement to celebrate more sustainable forms of transportation.
Those who pledge to Go Car Free or Car-Lite by bicycling, walking, teleworking, carpooling or taking transit will reduce traffic congestion and fuel consumption and promote a greener environment. Car Free Day is celebrated in 1,500 cities in 40 countries.
