Beat the Rush Hour!
Join us for the 2nd Annual Car Free Day Long Island!
Leave your car home or drive it less on Monday, September 22, 2014.
Join in this worldwide movement to celebrate sustainable transportation on Car Free Day.
What is Car Free Day?
Car Free Day is an international event celebrated every September in which people are encouraged to get around without cars and instead ride a train, bus, bicycle, carpool, subway or walk. This year, Long Island will once again join in by celebrating its 2nd Annual Car Free Day on Monday, September 22, 2014.
Car Free Day gives us the opportunity to consider the negative impact of single occupancy vehicles. Using cars less by using alternative modes such as transit, carpooling, bicycles, walking and telecommuting helps reduce traffic, conserve energy, reduce harmful emissions, reduce parking problems and save money!
To participate in this event, all you have to do is pledge to be car free or car-lite on September 22, 2014 by filling out the pledge form. It’s that simple! Once you pledge you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win great prizes! Already car free? That’s great and since you’re doing the right thing, you will also get the same chance to win prizes when you fill out the pledge form.
Car Fee Day is an event celebrated in over 1500 cities in 40 countries around the world. It’s celebrated in different ways but with the common goal of taking cars off the road. The benefit to society is a day with less traffic congestion, a greener environment and reduced energy use.
