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).

Arlington's Car-Free Diet Hispanic Program: Dieta Cero-Auto de Arlington

Learn about the efforts that Arlington County Commuter Services (ACCS) is making to integrate and foster a two-way conversation with the Hispanic community that lives, works, studies and plays in Arlington, Virginia.

The Dieta Cero-Auto program started in 2013 to promote and inform the Latino/Hispanic community about ACCS programs and services, transit, biking, walking, carpool/vanpool and telework. Spanish language elements include: brochures, videos, website, social media, public events, meetings with the community through local organizations, small businesses and other County programs and community centers.

In addition to the integration and education efforts, we are optimistic about inspiring other municipalities to engage residents of cultural diversity.
