Project Description


The problem we have tried to address is CO2 emissions due to people making short motor vehicle trips that could be walked or done on a bike. We wanted a way to translate this into a tangible action to help make a collective impact on emissions by making an app that lets a person know if the trip they just made was so short that it could have been walked or cycled.

Data Story


We used the dataset from Stats NZ New Zealand Household Travel Survey: Travel to work, by main urban area results (3-year moving average) To identify the average distant people in Christchurch travels on foot and by bike to work. This gave us the metrics used in our app to calibrate if a trip could have been walked or cycled.
