Official Low Car Diet Results

8/27/2008 12:01:00 AM
Remember that Zipcar Low Car Diet that I participated in earlier this month (here)? Well the official results are in reports the Boston Business Journal.

Car sharing business Zipcar Inc. said that the results of its “low-car diet” experiment - in which the company challenged 300 people to live without their cars for one month and rely only on public transportation - has resulted in money savings as well as weight loss for the experiment’s participants.

About 58 percent of the participants said that they plan to live without a personally-owned car, and another 31 percent said that they are considering the same commitment. The survey also reported another benefit: 40 percent of participants reported that the “low-car diet” caused them to lose weight because of all the extra biking and walking they did.

Unfortunately, I didn't lose any weight, but it did make me do an analysis of just how much I'm spending on my car. It's pretty painful (here).
