Walkable Living Stories
In Arlington County, more than 45,000 Single Occupancy Vehicle (SOV) trips have been reduced each work day. Over the year, almost 10,535,500 SOV trips were reduced.
Arlington County, in collaboration with the Coalition for Smarter Growth, is helping to collect first-hand accounts from our neighbors in Arlington, and across the region, to demonstrate our changing transportation needs and help illustrate the many different ways that we go about our everyday life.
We hope that this collection of stories puts a human face on how mobility and transportation choices in Arlington County are evolving, and helps to update the assumptions we use to plan the future of our communities.
Stories may be edited for style. Authors will be contacted at the e-mail provided to let them know we received and will be using their stories.
