Harford Transit's Commute Smart Division encourages motorists to consider walking, biking, carpooling and vanpooling or mass transit options such as commuter buses, MARC Train, Light Rail and Harford Transit LINK buses on Worldwide Car-Free Day, Tuesday, Sept. 22.

Worldwide Car-Free Day is an opportunity for all drivers to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality and save hard-earned dollars at the gas pump by traveling in ways that are more efficient, affordable and environmentally friendly, according to Harford Transit.
