New Plymouth carfree day

New Plymouth District Council
Take a walk, ride a bicycle, catch the bus
Next Tuesday, thousands of people around the world will leave their car-keys hanging on the hook and choose an alternative form of transport.

Why? To make a difference
Fewer cars produce less pollution, give people the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air, see our great region, and even get some exercise while they’re at it.

You can too
So make a decision to get to work and back without your car on 22 September. The more people who do it, the greater the difference.

To find out more, contact Nathaniel Benefield at the New Plymouth District Council.

Join us for some car-free fun!
Head down to the Huatoki Plaza on Devon Street West from 12pm-2pm.

Activities will kick off with a bicycle cruise around central New Plymouth, leaving the Huatoki Plaza at 12.10pm and back by 12.30pm for mini-putt and bike racing on rollers!

2 prizes of $500 each, to be donated to the winner’s chosen charity are up for grabs on the day. There are also some great spot prizes to be won too!
