World Car Free Day is organized in various cities throughout the world in different ways, but with the common goal of reducing the number of cars on the streets. The benefit is a day with less traffic congestion, a greener environment and reduced gasoline demand. Today, World Car Free Day includes celebrations in 46 countries and over 2,000 cities.

Walk Bike Tampa in partnership with the City of Tampa, Tampa Downtown Partnership, Westshore Alliance, Pedal Power Promoters and Sidewalk Stompers will be hosting our inaugural World Car Free Day. We are committed to car free spaces that grow inclusivity and diversity, making our communities healthier and more vibrant. Our mission is to nurture and grow car-free spaces and culture in collaboration with local communities.
