Cars Trending Down ... Bikes Trending Up!

Via Richard Florida and Nate Silver comes evidence that car use is peaking. To quote Florida:

Younger people today -- in fact, people of all ages -- no longer see the car as a necessary expense or a source of personal freedom. In fact, it is increasingly just the opposite: not owning a car and not owning a house are seen by more and more as a path to greater flexibility, choice, and personal autonomy.

Philadelphia is smartly following this trend; the City is doubling the miles of marked bike lanes. We here at MMPartners welcome these trends. We are investing in Brewerytown precisely because of its location. Living or working in Brewerytown is convenient, and you do not need a car.
