U.S. CITIES WITH THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF NO-VEHICLE HOUSEHOLDS

In the United States, not having a vehicle in the household is very much a northeastern phenomenon, with the New York metropolitan area containing seven of the 10 cities on this list. Mass transit is widespread, partly due to the high population density. In contrast, people in the South, the Plains and the West are highly dependent on their cars, and in most of those areas (even poor areas), few households are without a vehicle.
