2014 marks the 17th anniversary of Car-free in Cleveland. In celebration, we looked for people living car free or “car lite” in Northeast Ohio. We asked them, what makes it possible to live with or without a car—what do they need in order to do this? (feel free to share your car free in CLE story in the comments section below).
