PROBLEMS OF THE CARLESS (JUNE 1976)

Analysis of the survey, and other sources of information indicate the wide degree of heterogeneity of this group. While the person most likely to be disadvantaged by being carless is female and elderly, over half the population suffers from lack of access to a car. Car availability, as opposed to househould car ownership is a key variable in determining degree of disadvantaged. Of all households that owned no car, over three-quarters had a car available for at least one significant activity. Regardless of access to a car, there is a basic level of mobility, expressed in trips per person, per day, common to most people. A detailed study of a larger group of the transportation disadvantaged - the carless - has been carried out, incorporating an extensive personal survey of over 400 respondents in Buffalo, New York
