Car-Free Day Sunday, April 27th in Bangalore

Car Free Day

“This Sunday is a ‘Car Free Day’, which is not an attempt to take cars off the street. It is a pattern break. On the lines of the International Car Free Day, it is aimed at encouraging people to think about the impact of their transportation choices and how cleaner, more effective forms of transport can enhance our quality of life.

On the Sixth anniversary of ‘GoCycle’, join the ‘Car Free Day’ movement and contribute to the momentum that will help create a more sustainable future.”

  1. Wishing it all success. Hope more people get the (right) message!

  2. This is great!

    I enjoy reading your blog.

  3. No doubt a great initiative. But my only skepticism is how practical are these. Organising such events is far easier than putting the ideas into practice on a daily basis. Ideas are one thing, practising them is a different thing altogether.

  4. DId this happen . should have posted at how it went.
