College co-eds - Start Your Engines! Actually make that your "esca-legs," because its time for the First Annual College Commuter Challenge where students log their alternative commuter miles and track how much CO2 they are saving their school by not driving as a solo person in an automobile. The challenge will take place throughout April and colleges that sign up now will be sent a marketing packet to help promote the program among students.Walk, run, take the bus, even telecommute (does taking internet-based classes count?), in order to log those un-used miles. AlterNetRides, the organization running the Commuter Challenge, helps companies and colleges promote carpooling and alternative transportation among employees through contests and by proving ride-sharing resources. :College Commuter Challenge
