EYA recognizes the benefits of going car free and is committed to building walkable communities. The company recently commissioned a third-party study to measure the true lifestyle benefits of living in an EYA neighborhood. The findings showed that 60 percent of EYA homeowners have an “alternative” commute and 71 percent walk to Metro at least once a week. View more benefits here.

Join the thousands of participants who have pledged to make Car Free Days a success in DC and start living your car free lifestyle today!
