I am in Gen X but it seems I really should have been a Millennial hipster giving up driving to live in the city.  It’s also mildly funny to me that driving in the US peaked just when I moved to Sweden for the first time.  And I still can’t drive here, though the prospect gets ever more tempting.  Just for big shopping trips and jaunts to the country.  Really.
