World Car-Free Day

Monday, September 22 at 11:00am to 2:00pm

Bingham Humanities Building, Humanities Quad 2216 S. First Street Walk , Louisville, Kentucky, 40208

UofL will celebrate World Car-Free Day, an annual event to raise awareness about the many pleasures and benefits of living free of fossil-fueled auto-dependency! We'll invite area bike shops and bike advocates to campus to offer consultation, basic tune-ups, and on-campus delivery of bikes ordered through UofL's Earn-A-Bike program (application deadline: Aug. 28).

Free bike bells will be offered if you register your bike with UofL (it's free and aids in recovery of stolen and impounded bikes).

Free, responsibly-made UofL Sustainability water bottles!

Bring your bike for a free tune-up and learn to use the five D.I.Y. Bike Fix-It Stations available 24/7 on Belknap & Health Sciences Campuses! For help with repairs, scan the QR code at the top, or get the Bike Repair App for iPhone.

Teach-ins on car-free living with local experts offered on the half-hour in Ekstrom Library Room W210.

Join us in raising the profile of car-free living, building resilient communities, and inspiring others to try the many transportation alternatives available to everyone at UofL!

This is a Week Without Violence event highlighting the inherent violence in car-dependency and the life-saving, peace-promoting nature of the alternatives. About one in 70 people in America will die violently on our roadways. Hundreds of people are violently killed and injured by cars on Louisville’s streets each year. It doesn't have to be this way. UofL's Sustainability Council wants to help stop by the violence on our streets by raising awareness about safer streets with fewer cars and slower traffic!
