Baltimore was named the ninth-best city in the U.S. to live car-free, a claim that would no doubt surprise some of the participants from April’s Reinvent Transit public transportation-based hackathon.
The study conducted by CreditDonkey was published at the end of May (hat-tip to BmoreMedia for pointing to it), and ranks Baltimore just above Portland, Ore., as a car-free city.
What the list can be is an acknowledgement that U.S. cities have a long way to go to develop respected transit systems. For all the grief Baltimore gets for its transit from many locals, those who commute by train to D.C. may make up a bulk of large-scale mass transportation users in the region.
Read the findings. The methodology is explained at the outset.
