University of Ottawa Car Free Day

By on September 27th, 2008

Each year, International Car Free Day is celebrated in more than 1,500 cities around the world. The Parking and Sustainable Transportation Office has organized once again a wide variety of activities to promote sustainable transportation and a cleaner environment, all the while making the University of Ottawa community aware of the effects of our dependency on cars.

Through the day, there was music, a free bicycle repair workshop, an information fair, electric bike demonstrations, a farmers’ market, a free store, games and a FREE barbecue sponsored by the Office of Risk Management.

During this event you were also able to donate your old mountain bike to “Bicycles for Humanity”.
