Organise activities that celebrate sustainable urban transport. The celebrations can take any form - from guided walks or bicycle rides to street games to public lectures. As long as the activities promote public transport, cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable mobility, they're valid.

Permanent Measures

(Find more details below)

 Implement or promote permanent infrastructure that helps people make sustainable transport choices. These ‘permanent measures’ don’t need to be expensive: the aim is to show the commitment of the town or city to sustainable urban mobility.

"Car-Free Day": 15,949

2019: 1,374

Hold a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and instead opening them to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city’s link to World Car-Free Day.
