CAR FREE DAY

SAVE THE DATE | Sept 22, 2022

The University of Arizona Parking and Transportation Services will be hosting a celebration for World Car Free Day on Thursday, September 22, 2022, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The event will be hosted on campus at the USS Arizona Mall located at 1303 E. University Blvd. Tucson, AZ 85719.  

Discover the many alternative transportation options available to you in the City of Tucson and on campus. With the University of Arizona, event partners include the City of Tucson, Pima County Department of Environmental Quality, SunTran, SunLink, Razor, Spin, and Tugo. Partners will be in-person to provide insights helping spread awareness for alternative modes of transportation.

"Since driving motor vehicles is the single largest source of air pollution and greenhouse gasses, we celebrate Car Free Day to create excitement about replacing drive-alone travel with other modes," says Natalie Shepp, senior program manager for the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality. "This fun venue will showcase resources for bicycling, walking, scootering, and taking transit that can lead commuters to adopting healthier, cheaper, and rewarding ways of travel."

Pima County's Drive-Less Pledge is a community-wide effort to keep our air healthy to breathe. Each day you skip using a personal motor vehicle, you reduce air pollution by 1,000 lbs. per year.

Participants will be asked to sign the Drive Less Pledge committing to drive less at least one day a week. We encourage anyone and everyone to stop by Car Free Day at the University of Arizona and sign the pledge in person, meet our vendors, and learn new ways to get around the city and campus car free.
