MADISON, WI ~ As the month of April came to a close, residents of Dane County, Wisconsin had a lot to celebrate. According to the latest report from the Greater Madison MPO, participants in the RoundTrip Spring Roll Challenge logged an impressive 4,280 car-free and car-light trips. This not only helped reduce traffic congestion but also avoided over 7.1 tons of carbon dioxide emissions for Earth Month.

The impact of these efforts is equivalent to recycling a garbage truck full of waste or charging over a million smartphones. The RoundTrip online platform played a crucial role in making this challenge both easy and enjoyable for participants. By connecting them with various transportation options and allowing them to track their non-drive-alone trips, RoundTrip has successfully encouraged sustainable choices such as public transit, biking, carpooling, vanpooling, and walking.
