Save money. Save the planet.

Go Car Free

We create and manage Go Car Free™ programs for businesses, educational institutions, communities, governments, and large events.

Go Car Free™ programs teach, inspire, and incentivize car free commuting; reduce SOV (single-occupant vehicle) driving; promote alternative transportation including bicycle commuting, carpooling, and ride-share; and encourage car free and car lite lifestyles.

Our enterprise solutions deliver value through significant cost savings, positive publicity, and massive environmental and social benefits.

How does the Go Car Free™ program work?

GoCarFree.org partners with organizations of all sizes to change SOV (single-occupant vehicle) driving behavior.

We create custom-made Go Car Free programs that (1) reduce the number of cars driving to and parking at your location, (2) alleviate traffic congestion, (3) lower the need for parking, (4) decrease pollution and improve air quality, and (5) help meet your sustainability and ESG goals.

Each program includes our Go Car Free online course, an eLearning module customized with multimedia content tailor-made for your organization — including a welcome video message from your chief executive.

Our programs also provide one-on-one Go Car Free™ coaching, discounts, incentives, prizes, and live events.

Who is it for?

Companies

Businesses spend a fortune to provide parking for employees. Some studies say one parking spot can cost up to $50,000. How much money could your business save if 50 or 100 or 500 employees went car free?

Government & Schools

Federal, state, and local governments — including schools and community colleges — are under pressure to reduce their carbon footprint and increase sustainability. Joining the Go Car Free™ program demonstrates your commitment to climate action.

Colleges & Universities

Colleges and Universities struggle to provide peak-demand parking for the influx of students who drive to campus. Don’t spend $15 million to build another parking garage, encourage your students to stop driving!

Nonprofits

Nonprofits need to control costs while also retaining staff. How would your employees like to get the equivalent of a $10,000 to $13,000 pay raise? Sign them up for the Go Car Free Course.

Employees & Students

Between high gas prices, rising housing costs, and inflation, employees and students are seeking creative ways to reduce expenses and save money. With the Go Car Free program they can save up to $1,000 every month.  

Our Mission

  • The mission of GoCarFree.org is to reduce single-occupant vehicle driving, encourage car free commuting, promote car free and car lite lifestyles, and remove 2.5 million gasoline-powered cars and trucks from America’s roads and highways.  
  • We’ve already removed 20,000 cars nationally, and we’re just getting warmed up. 
  • Watch our Mission Video to learn more about our unique process and mission.

Benefits of Living Car Free or Car Lite

Better Health

When you stop driving everywhere you’ll walk and bike more and become more active. You’ll lose weight, improve your health, sleep better, and get more exercise.

Lower Stress

Driving in traffic raises blood pressure, increases stress, and causes anxiety, weight gain, and poor health. When you stop driving you can leave all that behind.

More Freedom

When you don’t have car payments, insurance, and gas to pay for you’ll have more disposable income for fun and travel. 

Climate Action

Cars are one of the worst contributors to climate change. When you join the Go Car Free  Program you’re helping save the planet, and you can brag about it at cocktail parties.
