Participation 2013

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Every driver who will present evidence of registration of his/her car will be entitled to use the public transport free of charge. Traveling by tram or by bus between 16-22 September may help reducing emissions and traffic jams. What’s also important is that residents may also make some economies. It may convince them to use public transport more often than their cars.
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 European Car Free Week in Poznań will end on Sunday, 22 September, with a grand finale on one of the main streets of Poznań - Święty Marcin.
