Get ready for Car Free Day Sept. 22

Car Free Day is September 22 according to an August 13 press release from COG.

Those who commit to participating (take the pledge here) may also choose to join a team―#teamwalk, #teamrail, #teambus, #teampool, #teamtelework, or #teambike.   Team members are eligible for prizes.   Participants are also encouraged to show or write about benefits of alternatives to driving alone.

Car Free Day should resonate with many across the city.   Consider, for example, FitDC, Mayor Bowser's challenge to the city to walk one billion steps.   And then there's Sustainable DC, the plan to "guide the District to be the healthiest, greenest, most livable city in the nation!"   Or, think about Age-Friendly DC and their strategic plan.

Learn more on the Car Free Metro DC website and then decide how you want to roll on September 22.
