Earn boosted rewards for Car Free Day

07 September 2021

Ditch the car from 18th September for extra BetterPoints

To celebrate Car Free Day we are offering Move for Change participants some boosted rewards.

Car Free Day is a global celebration on 22nd September to encourage motorists to give up their car and walk, cycle or use public transport instead. To date, Move for Change participants have saved 80,000kgs of CO2 emissions by choosing to travel actively and sustainably, equivalent to an average car being driven for over 200,000 miles! 

To mark the occasion Brighton & Hove is hosting a week-long programme of events, activities and giveaways between 18th - 25th September, from free bus travel to the South Downs to an eCargo bike exhibition. For more information, tap or click here.
