Starting Friday, October 7, Santa Monica residents, visitors, workers, and businesses will kickoff the very first Car Free Friday by giving our cars a day off and using alternative ways to get to work, school, or happy hour. By providing incentives, tips, and support for you to walk, bike, or bus once a week, we hope to make it easy and safe for you to make the shift to being car-free and carefree more often.
5 Easy Tips to go Car-Free for One Day
