What is World Commute?
World Commute is a not-for-profit, free social-network website to encourage, promote and track the use of non-motorized transportation around the world. We promote the idea of “Greater Health. Healthier Environment” through a unified effort of individuals engaging in physical activity for transportation purposes. The site allows users to create a profile and record non-motorized trips including daily commutes to work or school and “taking care of business” trips to the store, coffee shop, etc. Because we also want to promote physical health through activity, users can also record recreational and fitness activities scoring “health points.” Even though a run at lunch may not contribute to reduced carbon emissions, it is physical activity that promotes a healthier individual.
World Commute offers resources for new commuters on how to successfully start walking and biking for transportation as well as how to start a commuting program at work. New commuters will be linked to local and national resources. Experienced commuters will have the opportunity to become a local “ambassador” or mentored to help others in their community how to commute successfully.
Each time a member signs on to World Commute, real time distance traveled, money and gas saved, pollution off-set and health points will be displayed. We want to encourage individuals and to let everyone know that they are part of a growing world community of concerned individuals working to make a difference in their lives as well as the collective health of the world.
World Commute is be a resource for tracking statistics on local or global, non-motorized transportation as well as Walk-and-Bike-to-School programs. The site is dedicated to be a statistical resource for strategic partners*.
