In honor of World Car-Free Day on September 22, 2023, Commute Solutions, Commuter Services, Metro Transit, Move Minneapolis and Move Minnesota are teaming up to promote opportunities, resources, and events to go car-free and connect to the community.
World Car-Free Day aims to create awareness and educate communities about alternatives to driving alone. Launched in Spain in 1996, World Car-Free Day is observed in 1,500 cities and more than 40 countries.
Throughout September, Move Minneapolis and partner organizations will produce events and resources for individuals to learn about how to get around without a car and to experience car-free spaces in their communities. People are encouraged to go completely car-free all day on September 22, (World Car-Free Day).
