#autonvapaapäivä invites to try sustainable modes of transport
The Car Free Day will be widely covered on social media. A group of public figures has promised to leave their cars at home and try alternative modes of travel. To find out who these people are and how they move around, follow hashtag #autonvapaapäivä on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook (16-22 September). HSL provides the group with regional day tickets.
The Car Free Day challenges everyone to try different sustainable modes of transport and share their photos and comments on social media using hashtag #autonvapaapäivä. A bicycle will be raffled among all who share their photos.
The European Mobility Week encourages people to think about their daily mobility choices and their impacts on their wellbeing, the environment and society. HSL’s strategic goal is to direct the increase in traffic to public transport, walking and cycling and to make sustainable modes of transport more attractive.
