For the 8th year, Keep Middlesex Moving, (KMM), Middlesex County’s commuter services organization, is joining a worldwide movement to support Car Free Day on September 22, 2013. Car Free Day started in Iceland, England, and France in 1995 to raise awareness about the negative impacts motor vehicles have on our environment.
KMM will kick off this initiative on September 19, 2013 at Jimmy John’s located at 8 Easton Avenue in the heart of New Brunswick. WCTC 1410AM’s very own Tommy G will be broadcasting live from Jimmy John’s between 12pm and 3pm. Prizes will be given away to those who stop by the location during the program run time!
On Car Free Day (9/22/13) or any day during the week of September 15th to September 28th, KMM urges commuters to take the Car Free Pledge and recommends the following alternatives:
Use public transportation – a train, a bus, or light rail
Ride a bike or take a walk
Carpool or Vanpool
Bring a brown bag lunch or walk to grab a bite to eat
Work from home
Commuters who pledge to go Car Free or Car Lite can register at www.kmm.org. They will be entered into a drawing to win host of prizes including a $50 gift card from Magyar Bank or a Heldrich Spa Gift Certificate or State Theater New Brunswick Tickets or Rutgers Football Ticket Basket or Fragrance Basket from Firmenich Inc.! For more information or to register for the event, log on to www.kmm.org . Deadline for registrations is September 21, 2013.
