Car Free Day, Sept. 22
Mark your calendar to go “car free” or car “lite” on Thursday, Sept. 22. Car Free Day is a worldwide event that encourages greener methods of travel by mass transit, bicycling and walking to work. Carpooling and telework also count.
The Division of Amenities and Transportation Services challenges you to find alternative commuting options and pledge to go car free on Sept. 22. Talk to your coworkers about starting a carpool or vanpool. Try Metro. The Metro SafeTrack project will affect just a small area on the Orange Line in Virginia between Vienna and West Falls Church during September. The rest of the Metrorail system will be running at 100 percent with new and improved track work. This is a perfect time to explore your commuting options.
