Each year people around the globe ditch the petrol and hit the streets on bikes and buses in observation of World Car-Free Day taking place on September 22nd. This year you can join the international community in its effort to reduce our dependence on oil by ditching your car-centric commute.

This Thursday leave home early and try walking to work. If you live too far consider public transit options like CTA, Pace, and Metra. Let’s say you’re completely out of reach – then make new friends by joining a local carpool via Rideshare. On September 22nd you can let the world know about your creative commute by taking the “Car-Free Day” pledge on the Active Transportation Alliance’s website. So start planning as the first day of your autonomous autoless life begins this week.

How do you commute to work each day? Will you be participating in Thursday’s international event? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
