10 Most Convenient Cities in America
10. Portland, Ore.
Walk Score: 66.3
Transit Score: 50
Bike Score: 70
This is a town so obsessed with alternative transportation that landlords consider bike storage as big of an amenity as closet space and even do away with the occasional indoor parking space to make more of it. The city's fringes can be a bit far-flung, but neighborhoods within the Free Rail Zone have it pretty sweet, with free streetcar transportation just about anywhere they want to go. The commuter rail and expanding MAX light rail lines do a lot of the heavy lifting as well, but pedals power a lot of Portland's everyday transportation.
