What happens when you need to evacuate, but don’t have a car? Public transit steps in, but often you can take only what you can carry, and no pets. More than 400,000 people without cars are in the path of Hurricane Florence, many of them low-income. Just being evacuated can get expensive, if you need to pay for lodging, extra medicine and have special dietary requirements.
