I believe Carbondale has all these things, as well as Veo scooters. Carbondale is a university town, and many of the students do not have cars.

If you will be a student and living on campus it will be no problem. If you ride a bike, some streets have bike lanes and many businesses have bike racks outside.

If you were a student living off campus but close to the university, the only issue you might have is periodically getting to a grocery store. There is a taxi company in town but I can't comment on them on way or another, and I assume that Uber or similar service is available. If you had a roommate that owned a car you might offer them a few bucks for gas and join them when they make a run to the store.
