More people will be carpooling, biking and walking on Friday all in an effort to celebrate the 24th Annual Clean Commute Day in Charlottesville.
Some commuters in the area were on the Downtown Mall today taking the clean commute pledge. They promised to use a commute option other than driving alone for at least one day.
Although, the pledge is just for just 24 hours, organizers say you should be conscious of the environment every day and try to do your part to cut back on pollution.
"We do Clean Commute Day just to get people to try it for one day during the spring when it's nice weather. We're hoping that they can see that it's something they can incorporate into their lifestyle and that it could become a regular thing," said Lisa Horanyi, Program Manager, RideShare.
To encourage participation, CAT is offering free bus rides all day long.
