Macon Car Free Day

Join the movement to go car-free in Macon on May 20th. By pledging to use alternative transportation (public transit, biking, or walking) or reduce your car use (ridesharing, carpooling, or teleworking), you can explore new options, improve air quality, reduce emissions, save money, meet new people, and see your community from a different lens. Whether you’re on your way to work, school, the park, or to run errands, Car Free Day is a chance to see all the benefits of alternative transportation.
