Bid to get drivers out of cars and on a train
CAR users are being urged to take the train for the international car free day.
The event on Saturday September 22 is being backed by the Ivybridge Rail Users' Group who are encouraging everyone to give their local rail services a try on the day.
The car free day aims to remind people that there are alternatives to the car and most of them will save money and stress, help reduce pollution and make the streets safer.
A return trip to Plymouth costs about £3.30 per adult and can arrive within 15 minutes.

Totnes is 13 minutes away on the train and a return journey is likely to be less than the cost of parking and fuel at £4.40 per adult.
Katie Reville, a spokesperson for the group said: "Many of us are so used to jumping into our cars that we forget that we've got a great train station in Ivybridge and the rail fares are very reasonable.
Local rail travel can be made even cheaper by buying a Devon and Cornwall Railcard for £10. The card entitles you to a third off all off peak journeys within Devon and Cornwall and allows up to 4 children to travel with you for only £1 each."
Ivybridge Station is served by 17 trains on Saturdays, heading both east and west, including three high-speed services to London.
