This town-wide Age-Friendly project, in partnership with the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority, challenges and encourages people of all ages to use and discover alternate modes of transportation such as: walk, bike, car pool, use public transportation; CCRTA busses and vans, airplanes, ferries, share Taxi Cabs, Ubers, Yarmouth Voyager Vans etc. while reducing traffic and their carbon footprint. Our program runs during the first 21- days of September and culminates with Worldwide “NO CAR DAY” on September 22nd.
Participants sign-up at the Yarmouth Senior Center and other locations; receive Bus and Ferry Schedules. A journal to chronicle what they did differently during the 21- days for submission for prizes and a T-shirt. Some Collaborators are; Cape Air, Bike Zone, and the Yarmouth Public Libraries. Special thanks to the Barnstable Municipal Airport.
