Zipcar gets people to go car-free for a month.

zipcar Zipcar is running a promotion (unfortunately, they’re no longer accepting applications) called the Low-Car Diet that basically entails giving up your car for a month. In return, participants get free public transportation passes, a free Zipcar membership and driving credit, and other various perks.

If you live in a populated area and you don’t own a car, I’d recommend the service. You basically rent a car for around $10 an hour and you don’t have to pay for gas or insurance. I use it here in Boston and haven’t had any problems. Pretty slick.

The Low-Car Diet thing starts on July 21st and runs until August 15th.
