The Car-Free Living Program is a first-of-its-kind partnership that encourages residents to use public transportation and ride share. By getting more people into fewer cars, we can provide a more affordable alternative to car ownership. It’s all part of our efforts to build the first, large-scale, sustainable community in San Francisco, where going car-free is more than a possibility.

New residents who participate in the Car-Free Living Program get a $100 monthly transportation credit per apartment to use with Getaround, Clipper and Uber. Any resident can also catch a ride in an UberPool from Parkmerced to nearby public transit stations for a flat rate of $5.

When you participate in the Parkmerced Car-Free Living program, you’ll: 

  • Reduce your dependence on cars

  • Make your commute easier and more affordable

  • Ease traffic congestion by taking cars off the street

  • Improve your carbon footprint
