Flagstaff’s Carfree Day Underway Today
Several businesses and the Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Transportation Authority are providing discounts and free bus rides (with coupon available at carfreeflag.com) during today’s World CarFree Day.
Flagstaff and Northern Arizonans will be participating in World CarFree Day, this Thursday, September 22nd.
In addition, finalists have been announced for this year’s art contest, in advance of Flagstaff’s Second Annual CarFree day.
Trinity Quinn Gencarelle, first place; Seth Cassady, second place; Alandra Diaz Aquiree, third place; and Tyler Long, honorable mention. All are students at Killip Elementary School.
At 5:30 p.m., September 22, awards will be presented during a brief ceremony at the Green Room in downtown Flagstaff. Following the ceremony will be a free viewing of the film Power Paths, which depicts how the Hopi and Navajos are developing clean energy alternatives to restore ecosystems and build economic opportunities.
The goal of CarFree Flagstaff is to model a car-light community for both those who choose to drive cars and for those who choose to walk, bike, or ride a bus.
Early supporters of Flagstaff Carfree day include these local businesses: Fizz Bath Shop, Mountain Sports Flagstaff, Custom Sound Instruments, The Green Room, Collins Irish Pub, Altitudes Bar and Grill, The Bike Shop Hub, Scentsy Wickless Candles, Absolute Bikes, and Sea of Green.
Carfree Day Flagstaff is organized by Friends of Flagstaff’s Future, in collaboration with Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation (Mountain Line), the City of Flagstaff, Northern Arizona University, Coconino County, and other partners.
