Who We Are

Car-free Fremont is the brainchild of Sarah Kavage and Robert Zverina, Fremont resident artists who enjoy their life in Seattle without a car.

Sarah Kavage holds a Masters Degree in Urban Planning from the University of Washington, and is currently a transportation planner for the Washington State Department of Transportation. Before moving to Seattle, she volunteered for Transportation Alternatives in New York City and founded South Brooklyn Recycle-A-Bicycle, an afterschool bike repair program at I.S. 142 in Brooklyn. Way back in 1994, she organized high school students and residents of a low-income housing project to design and complete a community mural project in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Robert Zverina holds degrees from Cornell University and the City University of New York, where he taught freshman writing classes for three years. He is the webmaster for the International Inline Skating Association and International Police Mountain Bike Association, two non-profit organizations which promote non-motorized transportation. He also directs communications for AllWalks, a network of neighborhood walking clubs. In his spare time, he restores vintage bicycles and volunteers his metalworking skills on the Kalakala ferry restoration. Four wheels bad, two wheels good.

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less. -George Carlin

Car Free Fremont is made possible by a grant from the City of Seattle CarSmart Communities Program
