Setting & Lifestyle
Gerber is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Gerber isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
Being a small town, Gerber does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
