"In Utrecht-Oost quite some mobility challenges still exist and in reality, using public transport doesn´t always seem to be the easiest option. Low Car Diet was a successful event that made people leave the car at home and cycle to the Hogeschool Utrecht."
Policy- and Communication employee Sustainability at Hogeschool Utrecht
"A.s.r. is a sustainable company, which means that we have to look critically to the current commuting behaviour. Using the Low Car Diet as a competition element allows us to discover whether travelling differently is also a likable option. Reducing CO2 emissions by 5% in one month and winning the team price is something we can be proud of. Low Car Diet was a big success for us!"
"I experienced the Low Car Diet month as inspirational. About 200 colleagues participated and that makes this month a nice and approachable option to decide to leave the car at home. What I thought was remarkable, is that a female colleague travelled every day from Zwolle to Arnhem by using public transport during this month, despite having to drop of three kids at school every day."

"I cycled so much during this month. I only used the car twice. Last week I even cycled an extra round to collect more coins than my wife had in the Low Car Diet App!"

"Our job requires us to be on the road most of the day. It made me very happy to see that employees chose to use the bicycle or public transport. People are stuck in their habits and a project like this allows them to discover different ways of travelling in a fun and easy way."
