Become a Mentor
A great feature of this app is the opportunity to match experienced bike, walk and bus commuters to those who are interested in these modes, but nervous about the logistics. By creating Trip Profiles for your regular trips, and indicating if you’d like to be a mentor, you can be contacted by those in your area who’d like to learn the cycling routes and rules of the road, or transit tips. We’ll be offering special prizes for Mentors throughout the year, so more chances for you to win while helping more people move towards sustainable, healthy transportation!
Workplaces that sign on to have their own customized subsite are keenly interested in learning how their employees are commuting to their workplace, campus, or within their region each day. This data will inform decisions on workplace policies, infrastructure improvements and resources for healthy, sustainable transport. At Green Action Centre, we’ll be able to learn more about commuting across the province, helping us to see where the gaps are and to advocate for change. Log your trips, reach out to other users and make use of the trip profiles to be counted.

Single Trip Matching
