CarFree Day or CarFree Week is an annual event which is hosted in major cities all over the world. Travelers are asked to go either CarFree or Car-lite for at least one day during a designated week, usually in September. It encourages everyone to cut down on the pollution caused by cars by using alternate modes of transportation. It is also an excellent opportunity to spread the word about the impact that cars can have on our environment.
Each year, the Hudson TMA asks Hudson County commuters and residents to participate in the movement by pledging to go CarFree or Car-lite during the third week of September. So many meet the challenge and continue the effort by walking, biking, or taking mass transit as often as possible.
Every September, those who pledge are automatically entered into a raffle to win one pair of admission tickets to the Liberty Science Center. It is our thank you for helping to improve our quality of life.
