Celebrate Car Free Day Indy 2022 with Commuter Connect!
Car Free Day Indy 2022 is nearly here! Celebrated worldwide every year on September 22, Car Free Day is dedicated to getting as many single occupancy vehicle (SOV) drivers as possible using alternative transportation like carpooling, vanpooling, biking, walking, and taking the bus. With gas prices being at an all-time high in 2022, making it the perfect time to pursue better transportation solutions. Commuter Connect will also be motivating drivers in Central Indiana with a raffle and prizes for those who pledge to go car free or car lite. Whether in Central Indiana or beyond, we encourage you to protect the environment by participating in Car Free Day where you live!
Going car free helps protect the environment
The average U.S. round-trip commute time is about an hour for those who drive alone to work, and that equates to nearly 3.2 tons of carbon per year, per person. Celebrating Car Free Day Indy helps clean the air to make it more breathable for Central Indiana residents.
Gas prices are high. Going car free saves money
Gas prices hit an all-time high this year. When you go car free, you eliminate the need to waste your hard-earned dollars on gasoline, saving money in the long run.
Alternative transportation puts more time back into your day
Think about all the time you’ve wasted commuting back and forth to where you need to go during the day. When you go car free, you can catch up on work during the commute, or save time by working from home!
Celebrating Car Free Day Indy is just plain fun!
We’re celebrating Car Free Day Indy 2022 in City Market all morning on September 22! We’ll be hosting two events, with both events including live music from The Doo! Band, Indy’s most encyclopedic cover band. The morning event will take place from 7 A.M. to 9 A.M. with free muffins and coffee donated by Wild Eggs. There will also be a lunch event from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M. with snacks and vouchers for your favorite City Market lunch spots while supplies last. Make sure to register for Commuter Connect and “like” us on Facebook to be entered in our raffle for a chance to win prizes including a $250 gift card and Carrie Underwood tickets!
Car Free Day is an important international observance that makes a positive difference on communities and the environment. We are proud to be celebrating it in Indy and hope to see you there! Register today on the Commuter Connect website.
