Registration is now open for the region’s annual Car Free Day event, organized by Commuter Connections.
Workers, residents, parents and students across the region will have an extended opportunity to go car-free or “car-lite” (share a ride with friends, family, or co-workers) on one, two, or even three days during Car Free Days – Saturday, Sept. 21 to Monday, Sept. 23.
“We encourage everyone to take the pledge to drop their keys for Car Free Days. Leaving your car at home for one or more days can make a difference in your community,” said Nicholas Ramfos, director of Commuter Connections. “Be among the thousands who want to reduce their carbon footprint by exploring more sustainable ways to travel to work, school or anywhere you need to go.”
By taking the free online pledge to go car-free at www.carfreemetrodc.org, each person pledging will receive a promo code for the Nift Gift app, good for $30 toward purchases at local merchants, and will be entered into a free raffle.
