Go Car Free and Don’t Stop

carfree day rsSeptember 22 is World Car Free Day. People from around the world get together in the streets, intersections and neighborhood blocks to demonstrate how livable city streets are when opened to people and bikes. But we do not want just one day of celebration and then a return to “normal” life. It is up to us, our community members, our cities, and our governments to help create permanent change to benefit pedestrians, cyclists, and other people who do not drive cars.

In 2009, the city hosted several car free events called Summer Streets. To learn more about what we did click here. SDOT also supports people driving less through Way to Go, Seattle! It’s a resource we’ve created where you can find out about rewards for walking, biking and using transit more as well as useful tools and tips to help you get around without driving.

Join us and celebrate World Car Free Day, every day.
