Celebrate Car Free Day on Sept. 22
Kickstart your day in a fun and healthy way by reducing or eliminating your car use on Fri., September 22 – World Car Free Day.
Whether you decide to bike, walk, take the bus, or carpool, celebrate at our “Car Free Day Pit Stop” hosted jointly by Reconnect Rochester and the University. The pit stop will be held at the cycle track on Elmwood Ave., across from the main hospital entrance. Drop by any time between 7:30 and 9:30 a.m. to meet fellow cyclists and enjoy snacks, coffee, and giveaways while supplies last.

Reduce your travel costs and stress by sharing the driving with other employees.
