Sure, it’s common to take the bus if you live in a mass transit friendly city like New York or Chicago, but Mad Men actor Vincent Kartheiser is living sans vehicle in one of the most autocentric places in the world: Los Angeles.

For the last three years, Kartheiser has relied strictly on public transit to get around town. In an interview with the New York Times, the actor explains his choice to go car-free.

“It’s wonderful,” he said. “Instead of driving and being stressed out about traffic, you can work your scene, you can do your exercises or whatever on the bus. Everyone’s got their own deal.”

But using public transportation isn’t just about being super productive; the actor also recognizes the environmental impact of the modern vehicle.

“They’ve done a study and they’ve found that people under 30 no longer view cars as status symbols or even positive things,” Kartheiser said. “They look at them as pollutants.”

We’re impressed!
