Open Streets initiatives, often referred to as Ciclavias, Sunday Streets, Summer Streets, Sunday Parkways or Car Free Days, are transformative events held in more than 60 cities in North America, closing down public streets from cars and transit, and opening them up to people (including walkers, joggers, skateboarders and bicycles).

Open Streets initiatives improve a community’s health and environment, while providing a public space for community members to interact. Whether the focus is on your town, city, region, state or province, the case studies and best practices in this guide are a starting point to launching or growing your own initiative.
