Why Car-Free?


Why Car-Free?

There are so many benefits to taking more car-free trips that we only have time to scratch the surface on how great it can be.

Improve Health & Wellness
Choosing to walk, bike or ride public transit, instead of driving, can reduce stress and improve mental health.

Save Time & Money
A household can save nearly $10,000 by taking alternative transit and living with one less car.

Together We Can

Build a Sustainable Future
Transportation has become the number one source of carbon pollution in the U.S. Emissions from cars and trucks contribute to elevated levels of greenhouse gases that can affect our climate and harm our planet. Research shows that choosing a car-free lifestyle is the most impactful action we can take to combat climate change as an individual.

Benefit the Community
Studies show that walkers and bike riders spend more time shopping at local businesses.

Businesses are also looking for reliable transit options to attract and retain employees.

Neighborhoods with public transportation have increased property value.
