Nassau Inter-County Express/NICE Bus is a proud sponsor of the 7th Annual Car Free Day Long Island! Leave your car home or drive it less on Friday, September 20, 2019.

Car Free Day is an international event celebrated every September in which people are encouraged to get around without cars and instead ride a train, bus, bicycle, carpool, subway or walk. This year, Long Island will once again join in by celebrating its 7th Annual Car Free Day on Friday, September 20, 2019.

Car Free Day gives us the opportunity to consider the negative impact of single occupancy vehicles. Using cars less by using alternative modes such as transit, carpooling, bicycles, walking and telecommuting helps reduce traffic, conserve energy, reduce harmful emissions, reduce parking problems and save money!

To participate in this event, all you have to do is pledge to be car free or car-lite on September 20, 2019 by filling out the pledge form. It’s that simple! Once you pledge you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win great prizes! Already car free? That’s great and since you’re doing the right thing, you will also get the same chance to win prizes when you fill out the pledge form. 

Last year, Car Fee Day was celebrated in almost 2800 cities in 54 countries around the world. It’s celebrated in different ways but with the common goal of taking cars off the road. The benefit to society is a day with less traffic congestion, a greener environment and reduced energy use. 

Help us make the 7th annual Car Free Day LI a great success – pledge today!

In 2018, 7,325 Long Islanders pledged to be car-free or car-lite, resulting in the avoidance of 145,000 miles of driving and 73 tons of CO2 emissions!
