U.S. Cities With the Most Car-Free Households

I've posted repeatedly on here about how less people are driving these days, or driving less miles when they do drive. New research from the University of Michigan suggests that we've reached, and are on the downhill side of, peak car ownership in the U.S.
The rate of vehicle ownership has dropped from 2.07 vehicles in 2007 to 1.98. Why the drop? The recession? A change in culture? The location of where you live? DC Streetsblog takes on some of these questions.
