Short summary
More and more initiatives are being taken to encourage a transition towards low-carbon mobility. One of these is car-free housing, where residents commit to living without a private car. A survey and interviews in nine car-free housing developments show an overrepresentation of families and people with a high level of education. Residents refer to practical reasons but also ecological awareness and social values in explaining their motivations and long-term commitment to living car-free.
