We celebrated Car Free Day for the first time in 2019 with some fantastic events across London to get Londoners enjoying more car-free trips and activities! But this year we celebrated online throughout the whole of September with competitions and more. 🎉
To help clean up London’s air and get more active, we encouraged Londoner’s to reimagine their city car-free, whether it was switching to cycling the school run, walking part of their commute, or adding in weekend walks with friends. 🌳🚶
But going car-free is not just for Car Free Day. Where possible, we want you to continue enjoying those walking and cycling adventures! 👍
Here’s some trips you could switch:
- Get the kids to cycle the school run 🚲
- Extend your workout by walking or cycling to the gym instead 🚶
- Get off the Tube early and walk part of your commute 🚇
- Add in a mindful walk on your lunch break 🧘
- Explore the city on a Santander Cycle from as little as £2 🚴
- Consider using the River Bus if you live or work near a pier – you can also bring your bike on board 👍

Good afternoon! I really like cycling, but now every year it is harder for me to do this! I would really like to have a device like an electronic scooter or a bicycle.

What a brilliant idea let’s make every day car free. As a visitor I would never dream of driving in London, just a hassle. Most places are am easy walk from each other. We have to move on from the unfit polluter to the fit pedestrian.
I love using the tube & bus services and do walk a lot.
I live in London but I love travel inLondon
Great initiatives hope everything can be done safely.
Love the socks….and the bike looks great
It will just make my day If I win because I never win anything…

Thanks to Transpor for London cycling will be more accessible
I ride the bike to gym and walk to work. My son walk to School. Great experience!!!, Healthy and relaxing
Good looking for London
Changing behaviour to support a more sustainable way of transport is the way forward. It is a long-term
ambition and will take many Car-Free Days and Months to materialise.
Result: Cleaner air, more sustainable ways to get around and healthier & more happy Londoners
1. Phasing out dirty Diesels as quickly as possible, or ban from driving / parking in inner London
2. Opening up London to cycling and walking (more Street Spaces are needed) thus giving people real, viable alternatives to travel
3. Support new ways of travelling, e.g. e scooters, subsiding hybrid and electric car sharing.
London, we can do it!
