A Roy Morgan Single Source survey (April 2010 – March 2011 and April 2014 – March 2015) has found that an estimated 574,000 Australian households (6.3 per cent) now do not have a car, up from 490,000 (5.8 per cent) four years ago. A higher proportion of younger and mid-life households, ranging from Young Singles, Young Couples and Young Parents through to Mid-Life Families, now do not have car compared with 2011. Older Households – which make up around a third of the population – have bucked the trend, and are now less likely to be car-free.
