Thank you for pledging to be car free or car-lite on the 5th Annual Car Free Day Long Island on September 22, 2017. So far over 4,000 Long Islanders have pledged to be car free or car-lite on Car Free Day!

You're now part of the international Car Free Day event that's celebrated in over 2,400 cities in 51 countries around the world! Car Free Day will be celebrated in different ways with the common goal of taking cars off the road. Using cars less by taking advantage of alternative transportation modes will build awareness, reduce traffic, conserve energy, improve our air quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce parking problems and save money!
