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. So many not only meet the challenge, but continue the effort throughout the year by walking, biking, or taking mass transit as often as possible.Download the event flyer Pledge Now
This year, CarFree Week is 9/23/19 to 9/29/19. We ask that you not only make the greener choice during this week, but as often as you can during the year. If you make the pledge to go CarFree or Car-lite, you will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 gift card to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Jersey City. The support, partnership and generosity of Ruth’s Chris enables us to thank you for helping to improve our quality of life.
