Starting Friday, October 7, Santa Monica residents, workers, and businesses will kick off the very first Car Free Friday by giving cars a day off and using sustainable ways to get to work, school, or happy hour. By providing incentives, tips, and support for people to walk, bike, train, or bus once a week, the City of Santa Monica hopes to make it easy and safe for people to make the shift to being car-free and carefree more often.
Ways for People to Get Involved:
· Get friends, family, students, or customers excited about Car Free Friday. Check out this toolkit for ways to get your team involved!
· Organize your own local tryathlon –an adventure by foot, bike, or transit.
· Share the #CarFreeFriday Facebook event and invite your community to be a part of a healthier future in Santa Monica.
