DC Car Free Day 22 September 2009

Break the car habit for one day.

Celebrate World Car Free Day on September 22nd. Commute on foot or by bike, bus or Metrorail. You can even go “Car-Lite” in a car pool.

Last year 5,445 residents of the Washington Metropolitan Area pledged to be car free for the day to improve air quality, save money, and reduce their carbon footprints. Take this year’s Car Free Pledge here. 

Car Free Celebrations are scheduled for Tuesday, September 22nd in DC (7th & F Streets NW, 11am – 3pm) and elsewhere.

    I love this image! As a car-free mom, I wish we had a super hero looking out for us as we stroll and bike around town. We really need him around the 14th and U Street intersection.

    I LOVE this idea. I hope it brings more awareness to those of us who use our bikes as our main form of transportation.

    […] is World Carfree Day, and though we somehow let it slip by us, NotionsCapital reappropriated this classic comic to promote events down DC […]
