I currently am working from home, so I just commute from my bedroom to the room with the computer. But before that I never had any issues getting to work on a bike, where I live is rather small, I don't have to ride more than 10km to get to anywhere.

I work for a small railroad that runs from Camden County, NJ into Philadelahia.....my wife and I purposely moved into a town with a train station so I can take the train right to our headquarters and start my day.

I lived for 2 years in San Diego, commuting by light rail or bike. If you want to live car free in a big city, living near public transport options is crucial. West coast cities are harder to navigate without, because much of the infrastructure was built in the mid-late 20th century on the basis of everyone owning cars.

Lots of big cities are set up to almost be easier to live carfree than otherwise. My brother isnít a cyclist, but lives without a car in central London. When I lived in Dublin, I never had a job that I needed to drive to, and in fact it would have been slower to drive to most jobs I had, even if I could have parked at work (I generally couldnít). I lived in Sydney for a year without ever dreaming of needing a car. My wifeís cousin lives in NYC, no car.
