Devon County Council (DCC) is working with Plymouth City Council and Torbay Council to encourage residents to leave their cars at home and try using a different, greener form of travel on Wednesday September 22nd. The day, coordinated by DCC’s TravelWise campaign is in support of International Car Free Day.
The aim of the day is to get people to leave their cars at home, explore other options for getting to work or school and to reduce their carbon footprint.
DCC will be offering sponsored prizes for the winners of the ‘best team’ effort, and ‘the most creative way of travelling using green/sustainable transport’. People have been very creative in previous years and have used sedan chairs, horse and carts, tandems and rowing boats, for example.
