Mongolia’s capital Ulan Bator observes Car-Free Day

Mongolia’s capital Ulan Bator observed its Car-Free Day on Sunday to raise public awareness about air pollution and the negative effects of traffic congestion and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Both private cars and public transport vehicles were prohibited from all main roads of the Mongolian capital Ulan Bator on Sunday to celebrate Car-Free Day.

For many years, air pollution and traffic jam have been a huge concern for the city which is home to around half of the country’s 3.4 million population.

Various events such as cultural concerts, running and walking races, and employment promotion events were seen to be within the framework of the Car-Free Day under the motto of “Together for a safe and healthy environment”.

The country has observed Car-Free Day in its capital city since 2009.
