Getting around without a car can be tough. Luckily for car-less Philadelphians, Philly is one of the best places in the nation to live if you don't own a vehicle.

Financial website Credit Donkey ranked the 10 best cities for car-free living, based on the percent of people who commute to work on public transit, gas prices and commute times. Here's the list:

1. New York City
2. San Francisco
3. Washington, D.C.
4. Chicago
5. Boston
6. Philadelphia
7. Seattle
8. Los Angeles
9. Baltimore
10. Portland, Ore.

The site praises the buses, trolleys and subways that get residents around the city, and the rail lines connecting Philly to its Pennsylvania suburbs and South Jersey. The city also has the sixth-highest percent of commuters using public transit.
