A diet this bus chick can get behind

I’m not big on diets (other than this one, that is), but I am a big fan of Zipcar’s Low-Car Diet, a program where “members from 12 Zipcar cities [come] together to take on the challenge of one month of low-car livin’.”

Unfortunately, I didn’t get around to writing about it while it was actually going on. The official program ended today, so instead of introducing you to the Seattle participants as I intended, I’ll just give you the recap.

This year’s dieters did lose a few extra pounds, but that’s the least of their accomplishments. Here are some of the more noteworthy:

1175 public transit trips
1207 trips on foot
708 trips by bike

All of the particpants recorded their experiences (through blog entries, tweets, photos, and videos). Check out this page to see what they thought of it.
