A total of 143 Cities in China will observe the fifth annual Car free Day on the 22nd of September, including Yangzhou, Baotou, Xichang to name a few, with this year's theme being "Green Transport, Future City", according to reports from the China News Service.

The green activity will last from the 16th-22nd September with the Car Free Day on the 22nd to encourage people to take public transportation instead of private automobiles to reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption in China. The number of private automobiles in China has increased 16.5 fold from 1990 to 2010. Civil servants are being required to play a leading role in the activity.

The campaign was initiated by the Green Transport Week campaign, which was authorized by the EU commission.
