Car Free Day is Saturday September 22

If you don't already, why not go car free for a day on Saturday, September 22, Car Free Day. There are several events being held on that day in the Metro area, although it appears there are none in Fairfax County. From the MWCOG press release:
Participants are encouraged to use the event to explore alternative transportation modes or more efficient uses of their cars like sharing a ride to sporting events, concerts or other special events. To find others who may be interested in sharing the ride to a special event, drivers can visit Commuter Connections to set up a free account and then request a special event ridematch.

Even residents who already use alternative modes of transportation, such as bicycles, transit, walking, and carpooling, can make a pledge to go Car Free or Car-Lite September 22. Plus, those who pledge will become eligible to win great prizes such as an iPad, a bicycle, SmarTrip Cards and more! Pledging is free and easy at www.carfreemetrodc.org.
Thanks to Allen Muchnick of VBF for this reminder. He posted a notice on the Virginia bike advocates list, vabike.posterous.com. Registration required.
