  • Hi Joel, I see what you are getting at now. The sites I mentioned are a part of that overall goal for those who are motivated but are not specifically focused on your aim of promoting carfree living. There are also quite a few sites which take a "lifestyle" approach and have sections for car ownership, transport and commuting as part of calculating a carbon footprint (carbon...

  • Here are a couple of UK web site examples that I know of and have successfully used for route planning. http://www.transportdirect.info/ does a pretty good job for journeys within the United Kingdom. The CO2 emissions are also calculated for journeys within cities so you can compare train/bus/tube/walk combinations vs. car. Example: CO2 emissions calculator Full Itinerary for Sun...

  • Hi all, here is also an article from today with a similar subject. It mentions WCN`s AGM, me and my autofrei leben! club. I had a phone call with one of the authors a few days ago. He said, he personally lives carfree, and he was very surprised to see that there are carfree organisations. He liked that. I think, for Germans this article is very surprising, because nobody expects...

That`s nice, but I would not move in a such a town, it`s quite similar to my small street where I live: in front...

  • I wonder if they know the existing small "BikeCity" in Vienna ? They don`t mention it on their website. The term "City" is too big for what is build in Vienna - only one building - but they have experience with the demand / marketing: There were 5,400 registrations for 99 flats, says the initiator, Christoph Chorherr, in his blog ... http://chorherr.twoday.net/stories/4417870/ (in...
