Consider making your commute a bit greener with a free PSTA ride.

We’re revving up for World Car Free Day this Friday, Sept. 22 — a global holiday encouraging folks to hit the streets, bike, or use public transportation instead of hopping in the car. And while you might not be fully ready to ditch the ride, we’ve rounded up a few ways to celebrate in TBAY this Friday.

  • PSTA is waiving fares on all of its bus routes for the holiday. Check routes online.
  • The City of Tampa — along with multiple community partners — will host the inaugural World Car Free Day from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23. Residents can stop by activation spots located in Downtown, Westshore, and Ybor to enjoy an REI bike clinic, paint by numbers street mural, food trucks, pickleball on a garage roof, and more.
  • Car-Free St. Pete is unveiling a commercial showcasing a plethora of transportation options from 7-9 p.m at Green Bench Brewing.
