World Carfree Network

On the move

and the carfreemovement


  • World Carfree Network is the hub of the global carfree movement.

  • It is a global network of organisations and individuals, dedicated to promoting alternatives to car dependence and automobile-based planning.


  • Carbusters began as an organisation in 1997, and operated out of Lyon, France. It later relocated to Prague, Czech Republic, where it is today.

  • At the 2004 Towards Carfree Cities conference, the World Carfree Network was formally launched, with Carbusters being retained as the name of the quarterly magazine.


Today the World Carfree Network contains

over 80 member organisations...

  • ...and hundreds of dedicated and active individuals on every inhabited continent.


  • Our long-term goal is the attainment of carfree cities and many of us look forward to a world without cars. Perhaps idealistic by nature, we are realistic in our work. Short and mid-term goals involve the following:

Carfree Cities, Joel Crawford


  • The drastic reduction of car use in cities, and a boost of public transport, cycling and walking

Bogotá, Colombia


  • Further, the design and development of cities based on the principles of sustainable transport as well as non-car oriented urban planning.

Bogotá, Colombia


  • Ideally, we design our cities and communities based on the principle of short distances, where most destinations can be reached by foot or by bicycle.

Vienna, Austria and Bogotá, Columbia


  • Through a combination of materials, products and public outreach, the World Carfree Network attempts to be a reference point and the mouthpiece of its member organisations and individuals around the world.

Critical Mass, Budapest Hungary
