The Urban Planner's Dream of having the cars hidden underground

In the early design ideas for EPCOT, the Experimental Prototype City of Tomorrow, a big part of the dream was to have the cars travel in underground tunnels, to keep the city above clean, and keep pedestrians safe from motor vehicle accidents.

Well, the dream of having the cars tucked away underground has been around as long as the cars have.
It must be impractical, or too expensive, or people just love their cars too much, because I don't think the cities have been able to tuck all their cars away.
There must be large urban-planning books about such ideas.
Is there a city that has subways only, with NO CARS ALLOWED?
What is the most successful city design with NO CARS as a deliberaite part of the urban planning?
