The Air Pollution Control District/Santa Barbara Car Free booth will be located in the Public Square section of the Festival near Santa Barbara and Micheltorena streets (near the bike valet parking provided by Bici Centro/Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition). Lyz Hoffman, Public Information Officer with the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (SBCAPCD), the lead agency for the car free partnership notes, “If you’re coming to the Earth Day Festival from out of town, try taking the train to Santa Barbara. If you live in town, try walking, biking, or riding the bus or electric shuttle to Alameda Park. It’s so easy and helps reduce emissions from cars. Make sure to stop by our booth to register to win great prizes.”
Additional Car Free prizes to be awarded throughout the festival include: pairs of Amtrak Pacific Surfliner tickets; a one-night stay at the Upham Hotel; passes to MOXI; tickets to the Santa Barbara Zoo; MTD reusable bags with a 10-ride pass and schedule guide; ticket for a Funk Zone food and photo tour with Eat This, Shoot That!; and round-trip tickets to the Santa Ynez Valley on the Clean Air Express Saturday Service.
Santa Barbara Car Free is an award-winning project founded and led by the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District with more than 100 community partners who are dedicated to making car free vacations care-free. Find resources and car free discovery ideas at www.SantaBarbaraCarFree.org
