September 22 is World Car Free Day. Extinction Rebellion Boston is joining Car Free Boston to celebrate this international event to imagine a city free from cars!
The ride starts at Copley Sq. and will tour some of the coastal areas that will disappear in the next few years. Bring lights (sunset is at 6:42), and wear blue or green if you can. We'll plan on riding for about 90 minutes.
The domination of the automobile and lack of funding for alternatives like public transportation, cycling and pedestrian infrastructure is a direct result of lobbying by the fossil fuel industry. But we have simple, low cost solutions with minimal resource utilization that other major cities around the world are embracing. It is time to end the dominance of the private automobile and live in a city that is safer, cleaner, quieter and full of people instead of cars.
