Mark your calendars Metro Vancouver! The Car Free Days of Summer kick off on Saturday, June 8 in Surrey. The Car Free Day celebrations begin at noon and go until 7 p.m. as 137 Street, between 72A Avenue and 74 Street, morphs into a block party for sustainability, community, and all things alternative transportation. Did we mention it’s FREE?

How do I get there?

Just a few steps north of the Newton Exchange, it’s accessible by all the buses there — including the R1 King George Blvd RapidBus and R6 Scott Road RapidBus! Check the schedules by finding your bus at translink.ca/tripplanner. Cyclists can also ride to the event and park at the Bike Valet for free! Just like a coat check, there will be someone there to secure your bike, and you’ll get a slip for when you’re ready to ride back.

Can’t wait to see you there!
