World Car-Free Day
September 21, 2018
Launched in 1996, World Car-Free Day is celebrated in over 1,500 cities around the world by encouraging sustainable commuting. Minneapolis joined the celebration in 2016 when nearly 1,800 downtown commuters pledged to go “car-free” for a day, and improve their commute. With a little transportation coaching, commuters kept their cars at home and used transit, bicycled, carpooled, walked, or teleworked.
Minneapolis celebrates World Car-Free Day 2018 on Friday, September 21st. Move Minneapolis demonstrates just how easy, inexpensive and fast car-free commuting can be. Commuters can enter to win a bicycle by sharing their commuting story. Employers can vie for the “Best Car-Free Workplace” award.
