    Carless Living—How Else Can You Get There?

    Carless Living Made Easy

    If you are considering going full-time or part-time carless, or if you are thinking of ditching one of your household cars—you might be surprised at all of your options. Carless living is environmentally friendly, and can save you a ton of money.

    Self-Propelled And Mini-Electric Transpiration

    Between walking, bicycles, hoverboards, Segway’s, rollerblades, and the modern skateboard—it’s easy to get where you need to go. Even consider swapping your car for a fuel-efficient moped, electric bike, or motorcycle. Depending on where you live and how far your commute, these may not be a daily or year-round option for all.

    Beyond Public Transportation

    Unless you live in a major metropolis, public transportation has its limitations. Here are a few of your alternatives, which will vary from city to city:

    • Bicycle share systems
    • Car share systems
    • Carpooling
    • Taxis
    • Collective or share taxis
    • Short term car rentals—which are competitively priced for locals
    • Trains and buses
    • Uber, Juno, and Lyft

    It’s Not As Hard As You Think

    It’s definitely a major change, but carless living won’t be as hard as you think. In fact, you may not miss your car nearly as much as you imagine.

    As an added benefit, carpooling and rideshares are a great way to meet likeminded people in your area—and while traveling.
