Car free day in York

Car free day in York

5:33am 22nd September 2009

Helping the enviroment, and cutting congestion in York.

They're the two main reasons why the city's council is urging locals to go car free today.

Leaflets have been sent around to all households in the area, trying to pursuade people to either walk or use public transport.

But John Glavin the Lord Mayor of York isn't convinced there will be many takers.

Well we're going to put the car-free idea to the test this morning and see whether you can get across the city any quicker.

David Green, Alex Brown and Chris Marsden will be racing across York from 10.

Alex will be on foot, Chris on the bike and David using the park-and-ride.
