Developers Offer Mobility Services to Lure Car-Free Renters

Residents of Culdesac Tempe, a no-cars-allowed development in Arizona, will receive a bundle of discounted mobility services when the first units open in 2022.

With private cars off-limits, residents of the light-rail-adjacent housing complex Culdesac Tempe will get a transit pass and discounts on mobility services.

Rising from a 17-acre lot outside Phoenix, Arizona, Culdesac Tempe is billed as the first and only zero-driving community built from scratch in the U.S.: Its future residents are contractually forbidden from parking a vehicle within a quarter-mile radius of the site.

They’ll have to rely on other modes, including a bundle of discounted mobility services provided for in their monthly rent, according to project leaders.
