Virginia Tech MOVES Smartphone App
Bike/Pedestrian Route Tracking Application
Help us collect data for use in the Transportation and Parking Master Plan. We want to see what routes are being used, and when, so possible improvements can be made.
"Virginia Tech MOVES" uses the iPhone and Android GPS support to track users’ bicycle and pedestrian trip routes. iPhone users can download the "VT Moves" app through the App Store, and Android users through Google Play. The app is free.

The app is simple to use. To start recording your walk or ride, tap Start then Save at the end and specify a purpose for the trip (e.g., community, shopping, exercise). Data representing the route, date and time, and purpose will be uploaded to servers for analysis purposes. Users can cancel a trip at any time for any reason and no data will be sent unless explicitly directed by the user. Think of it as a travel survey that asks you why and where you are riding and walking, but automatically maps your route rather than asking you to write it down from memory.
