Take the Pledge

2020 Car Free Day Pledges: 1,678

Thank you for participating in Car Free Day 2020 - see you in 2021! 


Last year more than 8,000 New York State commuters went car free or "car-lite" on Car Free Day. Help make Car Free Day 2020 a great success - take the pledge today!

Car Free Day will look a little different this year - it will be masked and distanced - but you can still make a difference with your travel choices.

To participate, just fill out the pledge form, then go car free or car-lite on Friday, September 25th. Participants are encouraged to reduce their driving and instead telework, ride a train, bus, subway, bike, walk, carpool, vanpool, or drive an electric vehicle. When you take our pledge, you'll be entered to win prizes like Amazon reward codes, MetroCards, swag bags and more!

There are lots of Car Free Day events taking place this year across New York State. You can participate in any and all of them! If you live on Long Island, take the Car Free Day Long Island here.

Interested in bringing a Car Free Day event to your workplace, town, or school? Our team of experts is available to provide a personalized approach to help you encourage employees to participate and make a difference. Contact us at
