Local Area Events

Every year, Prince George's County takes part in two major events based on promoting alternative transportation options in the Washington Metropolitan Area. We partner with several other organizations to help faciltate these events and help get you involved. Find out more below. 

Bike To Work Day: Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association invite you to join over 10,000 area commuters for a celebration of bicycling as a clean, fun, and healthy way to get to work. Attend one of 79 pit stops throughout D.C., Maryland, and Virginia to receive refreshments, and be entered into a raffle for  bicycles being given away.

When: Second week in May

Care Free Day: A worldwide event that encourages greener methods of travel; meaning ways to get around other than driving alone by car.

Commuter Connections hosts Car Free Day in the Washington, DC region to bring awareness to the benefits of travel options such as transit, bicycling and walking; and also telework for people who can work from home. Carpooling and vanpooling count too!  We call that “car-lite” since they are both lighter on the wallet and the environment than driving alone in a car.

When: Third week in September
