Top definition
Living without a car. Instead, one prefers walking, cycling, and public transportation.

A carfree person usually makes a conscious decision to live in a place that offers plenty of public space and multiple modes of transportation.

In this case, a carfree lifestyle offers a higher quality of life:

- increases physical activity
- saves money
- supports the local economy
- strengthens the sense of community
- reduces noise and air pollution
- conserves resources for future generations
