September 22nd is Car Free Day!

Sorry. This form is no longer available.


Launched in 1996, World Car-Free Day is celebrated on September 22 in over 1,500 cities around the world by encouraging commuting without using single occupancy vehicles (SOV’s). Minneapolis joined the celebration in 2016 when close to 1,800 downtown commuters pledged to go “car-free’ by using sustainable transportation. With a little transportation coaching, commuters agreed to: bus, bicycle, carpool, car-share, bike-share, vanpool, use light rail, or walk to work or school. Move Minneapolis, the downtown Transportation Management Organization (TMO), is working with our transportation partners to demonstrate just how easy, inexpensive and fast commuting without driving alone can be. Stay tuned for information on 2018 World Car-Free Day.
