      I have had the same experience looking at the US from surveys, but in other IEA countries, there is a
      small non-car population (like myself ) in the cores of large cities who are not poor. Only 8% of
      americans in the licensable ages of 18 and over don't have licenses, and these are mostly poor or
      somehow handicapped from driving--or new yorkers. The number is much higher for Europe, probably 20-25%,
      suggesting there are significant numbers of not-poor non drivers. However, if you look at age specific
      license possession or access to cars, those 45 and under ate mostly car-red or have access to a car. My
      guess, and its only a raw guess, is that 5-10% of European households, all concentrated in cities,
      consciously have no car, while the 15% have no car because of economic reasons and 10% because of age,
      leaving 65=70% of hh with access to at least one car. This is consistent with the number of cars/1000
      people in Europe, about 400 (with Italy, Germany, Sweden, France higher and UK, Denmark, Netherlands
      lower . etc). 1 car for 2.5 people, with average hh size around 2.5 but roughly 1/2 of all households
      with cars have 2, .....

      Anyway, I enjoy my 24 speed bike in Paris

        La version fran€  çais suit.

        Getting around just got easier.

        It's here! Check out http://www.rmoc.on.ca/travelwise and explore the Region
        of Ottawa-Carleton's new TravelWise web site - our one-stop, on-line source
        for complete information about walking, cycling, carpooling, public transit
        and more.

        TravelWise is "home base" for the Region's transportation demand management
        (TDM) program. Over the last few months, TravelWise has undertaken
        initiatives or partnerships to produce the Ottawa-Carleton Cycling Map,
        distribute the Ultimate Ottawa Bike Guide and fund OC Transpo's expanded
        Rack & Roll (bikes on buses) service. As of today, you can get information
        on all of these, and much more, with just a click of your mouse.

        >From the TravelWise home page, click on "Getting Around" and you'll
        the most comprehensive information resource ever created for users of
        sustainable transportation in Ottawa-Carleton. Got a question? We'll either
        have the answer, or direct you to another site that does.

        And the TravelWise web site will get even better - we'll improve "Getting
        Around" by putting the Cycling Map on-line, and by adding information to
        help drivers reduce their costs and environmental impacts. We're also
        working on two great new sections - "TravelWise at Work" will focus on
        workplace commuting, and "TravelWise at School" will be a local resource for
        International Walk to School Day 2000.

        The TravelWise web site was produced by the Mobility Management Branch of
        the Region's Environment and Transportation Department. For more
        information, please visit http://www.rmoc.on.ca/travelwise, call the Branch
        at (613) 560-6001 ext. 1874, or send us an e-mail at travelwise@....
        We hope you find our web site to be useful and enjoyable, and look forward
        to hearing from you.
