Car Free Day in Montgomery County, September 22, 2021

Montgomery County residents are encouraged to participate in “Car Free Day” on Wednesday, Sept. 22. Car Free Day is a worldwide event that encourages traveling in ways that are greener than driving alone, such as walking, riding a bicycle, bus, in a carpool or teleworking. Each registrant also will be eligible for prizes.

Car Free Day is a worldwide event that encourages greener methods of travel—meaning ways to get around other than driving alone by car. Commuter Connections hosts Car Free Day in the Washington, D.C. region to bring awareness to the benefits of travel options such as transit, bicycling and walking. The program also encourages telework for people who can work from home.

Carpooling and vanpooling count toward the effort. Commuter Connections calls those efforts “car-lite,” since they are both lighter on the wallet and the environment than driving alone in a car.

Using more sustainable ways to get around helps reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion. Travel using alternative modes will produce fewer greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere.

Residents are encouraged to take the pledge to participate in Car Free Day. Each participant will be entered into a raffle for prizes from the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s Division of Commuter Services. Duplicate entries will be disqualified. Participants can take the pledge at http://ow.ly/A2S730rSQtt.

For more information on Car Free Day, go to the Commuter Services website at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/dot-dir/commuter/index.html

This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.

Hi Roy, I had no idea there was such a day.  Unfortunately I cannot participate this year, on that day anyway.  We are traveling to Iowa for a wedding.  I may want to try this one day most definitely!

Morning Roy.

The distance from my home to the office demands a mode of transporation.  At my age and in my health, thanks but I'll drive in.
