LOCATION OF THE CARLESS

This paper identifies the "carless" and shows where they are and what transportation alternatives exist for them. More than 65 percent of the U.S. population are carless. Data from Buffalo, New York, serve to indicate the relations among carlessness, median income, race, age, and accessibility of public transport. For the study area, the public transport system, which has a development consistent with the traditional pattern of urban growth, no longer adequately serves the needs of those who rely on it most. Examination of the extent of carlessness in the suburbs shows that the problem of mobility among suburban households may be more serve than that in the inner city.
