Participation 2012

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
The THEME is related to the local public transportation which offers a less polluting means of transportation inside the city. We wish to encourage the inhabitants of our city to use the local public transportation instead of their personal vehicles. The activities between September 16th and the 22nd will consist of free of charge trips between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. for all passengers. This time interval is the rush hour for people who enter the afternoon shift.
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
The historical center of the city of Sibiu is a very well preserved architectural reservation. The Large Square of the city and partially the Small Square are pedestrian areas, were access by vehicles is banned.

This measure was taken in 2006.
