Car Free Days 2013 Giveaway

How do you get around car free or car lite? In honor of Car Free Days 2013, let us know for a chance to win great prizes!

We love hearing how people get around the city car-free or car-lite. Do you ride the bus to work, take Metrorail home and use Capital Bikeshare for your trips to the grocery store? Do you have a carsharing membership that you use for picking up furniture or other big shopping trips? However many (or few) options do you use to get around town? We want to know!
