Colleges Discouraging Cars

Colleges across the country are trying new incentive programs to get students to leave their cars behind when school starts.

"This fall, Ripon College in Ripon, Wis., is offering freshmen free mountain bikes, helmets and locks in exchange for a promise not to bring a car to campus. The $300-per-student cost is funded by private donations."

"The college's president, David Joyce, says the project was meant to avoid building a parking garage, but its side effects are beneficial: less pollution, more exercise and savings on gas."

"About 60% of the school's 300 incoming students have signed up."
