Participation 2010

The participant is committed to:

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:
Löhner City = Lübbecker Straße in einem Bereich von zwar nur 300 Metern. Hier die Straße dem Fuß- und Radverkehr vorzubehalten, ist seit vielen Jahren ein Politikum und für Autofahrer deutlich spürbar, wird der verkehrsberuhigte Bereich doch vorwiegend als Durchgangsstrecke genutzt.
Implementing one or more new permanent measure(s), which contribute(s) to modal transfer from private car to environmentally sound means of transport.
Permanent measures implemented this year:
New or improved bicycle facilities
  • Other: Kampagne
New forms of vehicle use and ownership
  • Use of clean vehicles
Mobility management
  • Adoption of school travel plans
  • Create/establish mobility centers and on-line information services (eg travel planner)

  • Organisation of regular fora or surveys on public opinions and ideas
