Boulder tallies results of campaign to get cars off the road

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A campaign that challenged residents in Boulder to drive less has tallied its first year of results.

The Driven to Drive Less campaign encouraged residents not to drive at least once each week in 2011.

City officials say that based on survey data, the average participant in the campaign reduced his or her weekly vehicle miles of travel by 15.5 miles, or about 800 miles for 2011.

They say single-occupant vehicle trips to and from work or school decreased by 38 percent, bike commuting increased by 44 percent, and transit use increased by 27 percent.
