Car-Free Families

26 Jan

If you could walk, bike, or take transit to most of your destinations in life, would you give up your car? Some cities in New Jersey, such as Hoboken, are using smart planning and policy initiatives to encourage people to do just that. With the ongoing recession and increasing environmental concerns, some believe that we will start seeing more families go down to a single car or give up auto ownership altogether in the coming years.

Revitalized cities, retrofitted suburbs, and the movement towards 20-minute neighborhoods will be key to making life without a car not just possible but desirable.

On the Move readers, do you live in a community where you could be car-free, at least part of the time? What do you think is the most car-free area in the Mercer and Ocean County region? Is being car-free a goal that you care about?
