Car-Free In And Around D.C.

Car-Free In And Around D.C.

We explore the progress made--and obstacles that remain--by individuals and governments in efforts to be less dependent on cars.

America's long love affair with cars seems to be waning. Young professionals and empty-nesters alike are eschewing car ownership in favor of lives centered around walkable communities. When they need to, they're turning to bikes, hourly car rentals and public transit to get around. And as more people choose to go car-free, businesses are popping up to provide new options.
