Car-Free Key West program periodic Progress Reports found here.

Vision: Life within pedal strokes and walking distance.

Mission: Make it easy and safe for more people to bike, walk, use transit and share the ride more often.

Key West is compact in size and has multi-use trails, bike lanes, low-stress designated bike routes and plenty of quiet streets that can make getting around by bicycle and walking quick, safe and convenient. In fact, according to the U.S. Census American Community Survey (ACS) 20% of Key West residents bike to work. That’s great! But we can do more to make it even easier and safer for more of us to do so.

Key West doesn’t have enough space for everyone who lives, works and visits here to get around by car. Making Key West easier to get around by bicycle, walking and transit, makes us more healthy, sustainable, happy and prosperous.

Car-Free West is a program to help make it easy for more people to bike, walk and use transit more often. Car-Free Key West is a program of the City of Key West’s Planning Department and a part of the City’s Preserve Island Life campaign.

As we reach for a Key West that is easier and safer to bike, walk and transit in, Car-Free Key West hopes to combine the efforts of many – from moms and dads advocating for safe routes to schools, to City staff building safer streets, trails and intersections, to business owners helping their employees, customers and guests access their places of business without a car, to Police Officers helping all of us share our streets safely. It is going to take lots of people to make the goal of Key West as one of the most bike/walk friendly communities in the nation a reality.
