Can I be car free in Portugal?
Are any of you able to bike / train / walk everywhere without the need for a car? That would be my dream.

    Depends on where you live. We live in Coimbra and have no need for a car. Public transportation plentiful and cheap.

    We live in Lisbon. No car (and haven't missed owning one.)

    I used to cycle everywhere but Lisbon is much too hilly.

    Public transport even in remote villages is excellent.

    We gave up having a car and it's been fine.

We live in the Miragaia area of Porto and we have no need for a car. Everything we need is in walking distance and if the bus or Metro can't get us there, we get an Uber.
