World Car Free Day

World Car Free Day

The City of Red Deer is celebrating World Car Free Day again this year! On Saturday, September 22, 2012 Red leave your vehicle at home and use another mode of transportation, like, transit, cycle, walk or carpool.

What is World Car Free Day?

It started in Europe in the 1990’s as Car Free Day with the goal of reducing car dependency and ultimately reducing air pollution. In 2000 it became a global initiative where cities around the world encouraged their residents to go sans auto by finding alternative ways to get around their city.
