Car Free Day Long Island was started by Transit Solutions, 511 NYRideshare, and their program partners in 2013 to help spotlight our mission to reduce traffic and improve air quality on Long Island. What began as a simple idea to observe International Car Free Day has grown into a major event with numerous partners and thousands of participants.
