“Making It Easy” to bike, walk, take transit and use streets for people, not cars, makes our cities healthy, green, prosperous and happy.
At Car Free Cities we support policies, services and facilities that make it easier and safer to get around by walking, bicycling and transit. We support using our streets for people and not just cars.Why?
Our downtowns, big or small, are built out. We can’t comfortably fit more cars, nor have every individual driving to get from place to place. If more people walk, bike, scooter and take transit it makes our streets more efficient. It is friendly to our environment and helps combat climate change. It makes us healthier. And happier too. Very importantly it helps local businesses prosper.
We can learn from others and hope to share best practices of making this happen from around the world. We want to shine a light on positive efforts and call out areas where we need to improve. We want to make our communities better.
