Reasons to live no car.
Ecological and supportive is trendy and fashionable. Living without a car too, the same goes for alternative transport such as conventional, folding bikes, scooters and electric motorbikes or even walking.
More and more people choose to do so, to live without a car, for sustainable, economic and healthy transport.

Living without a car doesn’t mean we’re not going to use it at some point. Renting a car or sharing it sporadically thanks to the collaborative economy is a possibility that helps us to live without a car of our own.
