Car Free Day is September 22 this year and everyone in the region will be encouraged to get around without cars and instead ride a train, bus, bicycle, carpool, vanpool, subway, or walk. To participate all you need to do is fill out the pledge form, then go car free or rely less on your car by going car-lite, it’s that simple! Once you pledge, you’re automatically entered for a chance to win great prizes!
As part of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan Update the City has developed an online survey and interactive map to collect input on existing walking, bicycle issues, needs, and ideas for improving the environment for walking and biking. The survey and map are available in English and Spanish and will be available for input through early October 2014. The first public meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 30 from 7-9 p.m. at the Minnie Howard Campus (Media Room) of TC Williams High School located at 3801 West Braddock Road.
