Advocates Urge D.C. To Go Car Free For A Day

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sustainable transportation advocates are urging D.C. to go car free, at least for a day.

Saturday is Car Free Day and organizers in the Washington area are participating in the international movement.

The event is celebrated every Sept. 22 and people are encouraged to ride buses, trains, bicycles and other alternatives to their cars. Organizers say fewer cars mean less traffic congestion and a cleaner environment.

Events in the D.C. area on Saturday include a street fair at the Clarendon Metro stop, free rides on Frederick County TransIT buses, and car-free farmers’ markets in Montgomery County.
