Trip Tracking Tool
To help residents make smartTRIPS we have developed the Trip Tracker tool. This tool allows you to plan your routes, track all your active trips and see your results. Results include: number of trips made, km travelled, calories burned and greenhouse gas emissions reduced!
Using the tool is simple. Visit trips.smarttrips.ca and register or log in. Once registered, you will see the options to plan and track trips, as well as share trips and see results.
Plan a Trip
Start by planning your first trip. Name your trip something simple, such as “My walk to work”, and select the method of travel. You can then plan your trip by using the map, using start and end points or simply entering the one way distance. Using the map is recommended, as it gives you the ability to select your exact route and allows you to share your trips more easily. To do this, simply choose the “Using Map” option and click on your starting point, then on a number of way points along your route, such as major intersections, then click finalize trip to save.
Track a trip
Once you have planned your trips, use the track a trip option to log your active travel. Select the Track my trips option, and choose a trip to track from your list. If you track your trips once a week, choose the corresponding date range and enter the number of trips. For example, if you are tracking “My walk to work” and you take this trip every Monday to Friday both ways, enter 10 for the number of one way trips.
Share a trip
You can easily share your trips with friends and family to help encourage others to make active trips. Choose 'Share a trip' and then select one of your trips to share. If you used the map to plan a trip, the map can be shared using facebook, twitter or the unique link (url).
The results page shows you all the trips you have made by cycling, walking, boarding/blading, transit or carpooling, as well as the distance travelled, calories burned and greenhouse gases saved. You can also see how many active trips you made when registering and keep working to make even more active trips.
Currently the neighbourhood feature is just available for those in our Pandosy and Springvalley neighbourhood areas. As the smartTRIPS program expands to new areas, more neighbourhood results will be available.
