15 motorists to try Low-Car Diet in San Francisco area

During October, 15 individuals from around the San Francisco will give up their cars as part of a Low-Car Diet program (a diet Weblog's Sarah Gilbert went on back in July). The idea should demonstrate the ease of living in transit-friendly Bay Area. Each participant will have their car keys locked away for 30 days. They have pledged to use alternative forms of transportation, such as bicycles, busses, trolleys, ridesharing and walking. They were also given a membership to Flexcar, an program that offers on-demand access to a fleet of low-emission vehicles.
San Francisco is well-suited to such a test. There are mass-transit stops in most neighborhoods, and most amenities such as restaurants, night life and food stores are within walking distance.
