AMERICAN CITIES WHERE YOU DON'T NEED TO DRIVE
Added on: 21st Oct 2016
NEWARK, NEW JERSEY
Although it’s not as well connected as some of the other
New Jersey cities, New Jersey is one of the densest
states in the union, so it’s not a surprise that it would
show up on this list so much. Pro-tip: the closer you get
to NYC, the better the transport gets.
NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT
Two things make New Haven navigable without a car, its
compactness and the fact that it is a university town (Yale).
Bikes and busses would be the preferred alternative
forms of transport here.
HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY
This little city is right across from downtown NYC and as
you may suspect, its neighbourhoods are extremely
well connected to public transport.
JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY
Full of young professionals who commute to Manhattan every day,
Jersey City is a great place to get by without a car.
And you’ve got a great view of downtown!
BUFFALO, NEW YORK
Although car use is dominant in the city, there are many
areas where you won’t need a vehicle. Light rail and
busses will do the trick.
Unless you are living in the suburbs, many neighbourhoods
are very well connected. Downtown, the Pearl District and
Northwest Portland are three of the best.
Depending on where you live, having a car might be more
of a hassle in Baltimore than going car free. The bus
and light rail are pretty good.
As long as you live in Brickell, Downtown, or South Beach,
your need for a car will be limited to visiting friends
in the suburbs.
