If you have a car, ask yourself this: how would you get to where you need to go without it? Public transportation, a bike, car-sharing? It’s a question our guests have considered when they went "car-lite." The term refers to sharing one car within a household or only using a car when absolutely necessary.

Our guests discuss their experiences and talk about how to adapt a car-lite lifestyle in the Rochester region. Our guests:

  • Bill Collins, chair of the Advocacy Committee for Reconnect Rochester
  • Arian Horbovetz, photographer, and creator of the Urban Phoenix blog
  • André Primus, urban planner 
  • Tracey Austin, transportation coordinator for the University of Rochester
