Tidbit Tuesday — Non-Vehicle Households
July 30, 2013
Every Tuesday, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation & Utilities (MOTU) posts a map or graphic that tells a story about transportation or utilities in the City of Brotherly Love.
Philadelphia is one of the best places in the nation to live without a car. Our compact neighborhoods, 24-hour transit routes, and citywide bicycle network reduce the need for car ownership. As a result, approximately 34% of households in this city get by without a vehicle at home, even though less than 9% do nationally.
This week, we wanted to know which areas of the city have high concentrations of zero-vehicle households.
What interesting patterns do you notice? What surprises you about these numbers?
