World Car Free Day today

World Car Free Day 2019 will be observed today in the country, as elsewhere in the world.

Car Free Day Observance National Committee, comprising Dhaka Transport Coordination Authority (DTCA) and some government and private organisations has taken up various programmes to observe the day, said a press release.

The day is a free international event celebrated on September 22, which formally started in the 1970s in Europe, urging citizens to avoid using private cars and encourage cycling, walking or using public transport instead.

For the first time, it was observed jointly by the government and non-government organisations in the country in 2016.
