Snapshots of the Isothermal Region–Zero Car Households

Within the three counties, there are several areas where the number of households without access to a car is relatively high, greater than 10%. Within Rutherford County, there are two areas where 1 in 5 households does not have a car.

While these areas are mostly concentrated around the region’s small towns, it should be noted that McDowell County has no regular public transit service, Polk’s only runs a few days a week and even Rutherford County Transit only operates their deviated fixed route, Monday through Friday. zerocars
