NSGicon-01Track your Travel Footprint

Are you interested in knowing more about your travel footprint? Use the Neighbourhood Shifting Gears online Trip Tracker to find out more about how your travel decisions contribute to your personal health, the health of your community, and the health of the environment.  By entering your mode of travel and the approximate number of kilometers travelled, you'll find out how many kilograms of carbon dioxide you avoided sending into the atmosphere, as well as the total minutes of physical activity you managed to work into your day. The site will also let you know how much gas money you saved by not driving, and it will keep track of all these tidbits, so you can track your impact over the course of a month or a year!
