Yarmouth Hosting “Age-Friendly Transportation Challenge”

YARMOUTH –In celebration of World Car-Free Day on Friday, the Town of Yarmouth is joining cities and towns around the world in promoting car-free travel.

Residents are invited to join Town Administrator Daniel Knapik and Assistant Town Manager Chris Dwelley for the “Age-Friendly Yarmouth Transportation Challenge” by leaving their cars at home.

Organizers hope that residents can discover the environmental, financial, community and health benefits of using public transportation, carpooling, bicycling and walking.

“What we hope to do is see what people do and give us positive and negative feedback about how their day went,” said Yarmouth Director of Senior Services Kathi Bailey.

Participants received a free travel journal and Transportation Challenge t-shirt for taking part.

All journals returned by Monday will be entered to win a VIP luncheon for two.

“We hope to discover what’s going right and what’s going wrong with transportation in Yarmouth,” said Bailey.
