Arlington Car-Free and Car-Lite Living Stories

Arlington County’s Car-Free Diet, in collaboration with the Coalition for Smarter Growth, wants to hear your car-free or car-lite story!

Shirlington citizens, share how you get to work, school or shopping by walking, biking or using public transportation.

The Coalition recently launched a new feature series on their website, "Walkable Living Stories." The series profiles first-hand accounts that demonstrate our changing transportation needs and help illustrate the many different ways that we go about our everyday lives.

Please go to and tell us how you complete a regular task or errand – like grocery shopping, visiting the doctor, dropping your child off at daycare, or commuting to a job – without using a personal car.

We hope that you will contribute a story and join with others to put a human face on how mobility and transportation choices are evolving in our community.
