There is no specific fund available for Boroughs to apply to for a Car Free Day. However one successful application to my Air Quality Fund – ‘Healthy Streets Everyday’ coordinated by the Cross River Partnership - included an element of Car Free Day funding for 16 boroughs.

I have also provided funding to London Play to work with residents and boroughs to deliver at least 200 Play Streets across London on Car Free Day.

Transport for London is also sharing the ‘Reimagine’ event toolkit with boroughs who would like to deliver Car Free Day events, which will help with marketing costs.
