Car Free Day on September 22-Montgomery County Offers Tips on How You Can Participate

Montgomery County Commuter Services (MCCS) invites residents and employees to join the Washington region in celebrating Car Free Day on Wednesday, September 22.  This annual, worldwide event encourages the public to find alternatives to using cars or reduce the amount of driving that day.  Organizers promote the idea that using transit, biking, and walking – instead of driving – will reduce noise, pollution and stress.

            “People throughout the region are re-evaluating their relationship with the car,” said Montgomery County Department of Transportation Director Art Holmes.  “This is great news for transit and great news for the environment.  I encourage everyone to try transportation alternatives that will help us relieve congestion and the stress of commuting.”
