One of the big drawbacks of my job is that I can’t rely on Metro or the Bus to handle every place I need to go. So, for me, despite my desire to be car-free, I just can’t make it happen. And, judging by the traffic reports this morning, I’m far from alone. Hopefully, though, many were able to take public transit this morning, or carpool with friends to make it all work out.
For those who did make an effort to leave their wheels at home today, check out the Car-Free Festival on F St NW between 7th and 9th streets over by the National Gallery. You can’t miss the big balloon arches, and you can check out the new rent-shared bicycles that we love to hate so much.
