Pedestrians and cyclists enjoyed a vehicle-free South Street between the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers during the Philadelphia Free Streets event on Sept. 24, 2016.

No car? No problem. Philadelphia's been ranked one of the best cities to live in without a vehicle in a recent study.

Redfin, a real estate listings website, dug through the data to come up with the list, which was published earlier this month. The website looked at cities across the U.S. with populations greater than 300,000 and from there, examined the walkability of each city, how bikeable the area is and its public transportation system.

Philly came in at No. 5 on the list of 10 cities, one above Chicago and one spot below Washington, D.C.

Redfin said that while Philly is very walkable, it also "offers plenty of public transportation." The website also highlighted Philly as one of the top cities in the nation for cyclists.

Back in May, Redfin ranked Philly as the No. 1 city in the nation for biking downtown.

Biking's on the rise, too. More and more people are commuting to work while Indego, the city's bike share program, reached 1 million rides in November after launching in April 2015.
