100 Car-Free Transit Options

Celebrate Car-Free Day with These Alternative Means of Transportation

— September 22, 2015 — Unique
Car-Free Day is the perfect time to leave your keys at home and grab another ride. Thanks to the growing popularity of biking communities, commuters are able to pedal their way to work, class or just around town rather than using a vehicle. A few cycling-related examples include lightweight carbon bikes and electric cargo bicycles. There are even bike rental shops and kiosks in most major cities that allow cyclists to borrow one for the day rather than making a purchasing commitment.

Additionally, there are public transit options the embrace the surge towards eco-friendly commuting alternatives -- electric and hybrid buses are a smooth ride and an environmentally conscious choice.

Commuting without a car is one of the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint and although it might not always be easy, Car-Free Day is the perfect time to check some of these creative transit options.
