Car Free Day 21st February 2016

Today is car free day in Dubai where the government are encouraging more people to use public transport instead of their cars.

This is the 7th year for car free day and it has been a great success in the past in making people think about the environment and the effect of using cars instead of public transport.

In the past free rides have been offered on car free day but in recent years this has been changed to offering prizes to regular riders on the Dubai Metro.

Many companies are supporting car free day and encouraging their employees to use the Dubai Metro to travel to and from work.
