10 Most Convenient Cities in America
Walk Score: 74.3
Transit Score: 65
Bike Score: 62
It can still be a nightmare for cyclists squeezed by traffic and stuck on large roadways, but Chicago's broad sidewalks and public transit options are a draw for would-be city dwellers. The neighborhoods near Lake Michigan are packed with enough amenities to make them easily car free, but the Chicago Transit Authority's bus and subway system carries more than 500 million riders a year and is perhaps the biggest argument for keeping the car at home. Not all Chicagoans have it so easy; 4% of residents in the extreme west and south of the city still need a car to get anywhere.
