International Car Free Day, which is celebrated on September 22nd, encourages motorists to give up their cars for a day. Motor vehicles emit carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which are major causes of global warming. Cities all around the world organize events to promote and encourage the use of mass transit, biking, walking, and other alternate transportation modes to reduce the number of cars on the road. Car Free Day Indy provides Central Indiana the opportunity to join the International celebration. Commuter Connect has the resources you need to go car free!
What are the benefits of going car free or car-lite?
Be more productive during your day. You can work, text, and post; things you can’t do when you’re driving.
Save money and stay social. When you chose alternate transportation options, you pay less for gas, parking, and wear & tear on your car. You can also spend more time with co-workers and friends instead of sitting in traffic alone.
Help the environment. By choosing to participate in Car Free Day Indy 2021, you can reduce your carbon footprint and improve the air quality in Central Indiana.
