"I'll be heading back home to Vancouver, Canada tomorrow, but I have really enjoyed my stay here in SLO - very friendly people & great places to dine! Cheers!"

"I love SLO… and I would recommend SLO Car Free to anyone if they were taking the train to SLO!"

David, Mission Viejo, CA

"Thank you Meghan and Car Free SLO! With your help, we had a wonderful vacation. We loved passing by the bumper to bumper traffic on the 101 while we enjoyed lunch on Amtrak. Amtrak was also very accommodating with our bikes… your maps helped us to easily navigate our bikes to the hotel. Your website helped us plan a wonderfully romantic dinner, Creekside. Our bike tour of the wineries was trouble free due to the great maps and supporting information you provided. There wasn't one moment that we felt like we didn't know what to do or how to get there because of all the planning that you helped us with. So many people were excited about what we did and we shared your website with them. I especially appreciated how responsive you were to my inquiries, providing whatever support I needed. Great work! I'm so happy you are around."

Tracy, Los Angeles, CA

"Loved it!! SLO is accessible by foot and Amtrak, it was the perfect stopover / adventure on our way from San Francisco Bay to the LA area. My 7-year-old daughter and I loved being Car Free the whole trip. Another cool thing about being car free was that by walking we discovered SLO features we might not have otherwise missed. For example, a great plaground. We liked it so much that we went back to it a couple more times during our 24 hour trip (a 7 year olds heaven)! "

"Good Day! A quick note following a brief stay in your wonderful county. The Airport is delightfully accessible to town by foot; the sidewalk system was great. A brief walk to Art's Cycle shop allowed me to pick up a very nice rental bike at a very reasonable rate. The folks at the bike shop were helpful in directions and made certain I had all the safety items I needed. My hotel (Los Padres Inn) was very accomodating to bikes and the "pathways" to and from the medical facilities made travel comfortable. You are to be commended for the community effort it takes to afford these things. Many thanks and best regards."

"I would recommend SLO Car Free to a friend because it got me to experience where I live in a better way that I wouldn't have gotten the chance to experience without the incentive."

Clint, Grover Beach, CA

"I recently took a trip to San Luis Obispo and when I flew into the airport, I was greeted by my hotels complimentary shuttle and from there it was easy to get around SLO without a car. It was amazing how care free and easy it is to get around San Luis Obispo. The bike maps on this website allowed me to get from place to place with ease and efficiency. Thanks for providing such a great service to visitors of SLO!"

Lauren, Redding, CA

"My family had a great time being Car Free in SLO! I want to thank you for having such an informative and helpful website. When choosing a place to stay and activities for me and my family, it was important to me that they offer incentives for people making an effort to get out of their cars and try something new. Thanks again!"
