About Us

San Luis Obispo Car Free is a cooperative partnership initiated and led by the San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District and the Central Coast Clean Cities Coalition. Established in 2009 for cleaner air and a healthier planet, our mission is to preserve clean air, promote community and individual responsibility for air quality, and to promote economic and community well-being through encouraging car-free, care-free transportation to and around the San Luis Obispo area.

SLO Car Free promotes and provides tools to travelers on the pleasures and availability of traveling to our area without their cars, or by parking their cars once they arrive.  By pledging to travel to or around San Luis Obispo without a car, visitors receive special incentives from participating hotels, restaurants, transportation services and attractions. This website is a hub for information and web-links on transportation, lodging, attractions and other visitor needs.
