18 Memphis residents from various neighborhoods have committed to being car-free during the entire month of April. These residents have been supplied with a “Car-Free Survival Kit” to assist them as they go cold turkey and take to Memphis streets using bicycles, public transportation, walking, or carpooling to get where they need to go. Each of these participants has a different background, employment status, and reason for trips that makes each of their experiences unique and captivating. Click the profile of any member of our Model Citizens to understand how they get around and the reasons they do.
Throughout the month, each Model Citizen will be blogging about their experiences, sharing tips for getting around without a car, and providing feedback on the good and bad of Memphis transportation.
