Last year 8.7% of US households reported they have no vehicle available to them. In Syracuse it is 29.2% up from 26.4% last year.
Walkable cities like San Francisco , Philadelphia and Baltimore have rates like Syracuse but they also have significant walkability , density and extensive mass transit making it possible for many to live comfortably without a car.
For Low income residents in Syracuse it comes down to walking or the bus. If these means of transportation are not available, you can't get there. Places like Jobs, medical visit, cultural events, shopping, Education & Training programs etc.
Providence Services is providing a Shuttle to Work service to help people get jobs. With thousands unemployed and many job opportunities available , but not reachable by bus, we are the only affordable option.
Lyft and Uber are often cost over a 1/3 of low income worker's daily wage. That is too much.
