The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Uzhgorod city council started sustainable mobility actions at the very beginning of this year with introduction of permanent changes in the transportation scheme. Main actions taken were: closing of the central part of the city for the weekend (Friday evening - Sunday evening) and holidays; development of the bicycle lanes scheme and marking of the bicycle lanes; repair of the road surface at the main streets in the city; building of bicycle parking spots.
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:
Zone, restricted for the private cars, public transport on September, 22 is the road along the embankment (1.8 km) which is usually taken by cars to shorten the way from the remoted areas to the central part.
