Take the Car Free Day Pledge

Car Free Day 2022 is Thursday, September 22!

Car Free Day is an international event celebrated in more than 50 countries. Every year, 511NY Rideshare celebrates Car Free Day by encouraging participants to travel without the use of cars and instead travel by train, bus, bicycle, carpool, subway, walk, or another alternative mode, reducing the environmental impact on your community.  

To participate, take the pledge, and then go car free or car lite on September 22 by riding a bus, subway, ferry, or train, carpooling, biking, walking, combining trips, driving an electric vehicle, or teleworking – it's that easy!

When you take the pledge, you will get recognized for your sustainability efforts and earn "GREEN" bragging rights for your organization!

Can't participate on Thursday, September 22? You can still take the pledge! Then, choose any day before October 2 to go car free or car lite.
