About

Arlington's Car-Free Diet is the easy, fun way to live a car-free lifestyle. Each time you leave your car at home – choosing instead to ride transit, bike, walk or telework – you can save money, improve your health and clean our environment.

Arlington's Car-Free Diet is a program of Arlington County Commuter Services (ACCS), a bureau of the Department of Environmental Services of Arlington County, Virginia. Other ACCS programs and services include CommuterPage.com®,  CommuterDirect.com®, The Commuter Store®, WalkArlington, BikeArlington, and Arlington Transportation Partners. ACCS is funded in part by grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT).
