This week’s “In Theory” section in The Washington Post is all about car-free cities. An article in Monday’s Washington Post declared that it is time to move on from the car century. A related article suggested that Americans are ditching their cars and moving toward multi-modal transit options, including walking, cycling, and transit. In the same series, this article tells the story of how cars took the streets from pedestrians.
There will be more stories the rest of this week, all examining the future of our cities and how we’ll get around them. The Post plans to capture different perspectives on this topic. I urge you to read them since in the Pike District, our goal is to create a more walkable, liveable, multi-modal community.
