That is correct. Austin has just one interstate (I-35) in the whole metro area. And although I-35 skirts downtown to the east, there are no highway interchanges anywhere in the central part of the city. It is very unusual in that sense among US cities of it's size.

Jersey City only has 2 Freeways , and for a city right next to Newark & NYC its a little strange , but the Transit is really good.

Technically Austin has five freeways

I-35
Mopac
U.S. 183
U.S. 290
SH 71

Not to mention SH 130 and SH 45 which are recently constructed toll roads that circle the city.

Come to think of it I think Raleigh only has I-40 & I-440 although the Triangle also has I-85 run through Durham.

Savannah, GA. I-16 ends just before you enter the Historic District, and I-95 is a good 10 miles west of the city.

Yea, I don't think anybody can touch DC's lack of highways inside the beltway.

Those don't count, as they are not true freeways throughout -- they all have lights. Basically they are state roads with a stretch of divided/no traffic light sections.

They are toll roads, not freeways, and they are mostly outside the city limits (or the very outskirts).
