World Car Free Day this Thursday

Oil up your bike chain and top up your bus cards… and perhaps score a free coffee as we ditch the car this World Car Free Day!

Every year on September 22 communities across the globe unite to celebrate World Car Free Day — a movement that encourages motorists to give up their cars for a day in favour of more climate-friendly modes of transport and to highlight the impact our transport choices make on greenhouse gas emissions.

Moving to more sustainable transport in and around our campuses is part of UC’s goal of reaching carbon neutral status by 2030.

Keen to get on board? Get some fresh air on a walk, bike, skate, or scoot, or chill out on the bus and avoid the stress of the traffic jam and the cost of petrol and parking. And, if you’re lucky… you might just win a spot prize for taking part!

Keep an eye out for student volunteers handing out free coffee vouchers near bus stops, bike stands and through campus on the morning of Thursday 22 September.

Learn about the different options to get to and from campus here, and together let’s think about how we can put down the car keys for the climate this Thursday!
