Participation 2016

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Several events will be held across Long Island to celebrate Car Free Day Long:

1. "Rate the Ride" - A cross Long Island bus trip highlighting places reachable by our two public bus systems in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

2. Car Free Day LI Summit - Suffolk County will host their annual Summit. Topics this year include sustainable mobility options including BRT and bike sharing programs.

3. Car Free Day LI Celebration - This event at the Wyandanch Village transit oriented development will educate and encourage the public to choose more sustainable transportation options.
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:
For Car Free Day Long Island, we encourage Long Island residents and workers to pledge to go car free or car-lite on Car Free Day at our website: www.carfreedayli.com/pledge
