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.
