AMERICAN CITIES WHERE YOU DON'T NEED A CAR
Added on: 6th Aug 2016
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Ok, hear us out. We know, it’s the epitome of car culture, but
depending on where you live in LA, you can actually make it
work. Between car sharing, uber, metro, light rail, and busses,
it is possible. Maybe not your preference, but it’s possible.
While it’s not the first place you think of going without a car,
between busses, walking, and biking, it is possible to make it work.
Thanks to being in the Boston metropolitan area, living
here without a car is not a problem.
Being so close to the nation’s capital, Arlington shares lively
neighbourhoods with great transport options. It’s an ideal
place to live without a car.
Thanks to being highly bike able and walkable, along with decent
light rail and bus systems, it is definitely possible to live in
Sacramento without a car.
Located in the Bay Area, the region is known for having
above average walkability. And in spite of Oakland’s bad rep,
it has cleaned up a lot. These days it is a vibrant city with arts,
culture, and of course, sunshine. The best neighbourhoods
for going car free are Downtown and Laney College.
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA
It’s not the best place in the world to go carless, but it is
certainly possible. You just have to make sure you are close
to the public transport (bus, light rail). Neighbourhoods
like Plaza Midwood are the best.
TWIN CITIES, MINNESOTA
Between light rail, busses, and walking, there are many parts of
this metropolis in which a car wouldn’t be necessary. The
farther you get from the centre though, the harder it will be.
This will largely depend on where you live in the metro area.
North Point, Murray Hill, and Juneau Town are some of the
best when it comes to walkability.
