Can you share some example trips?
Yes. Here are some example trips for you to think about:
  • I commuted by bus from home to work
  • I rode in my friend’s car on the way to the movies
  • I drove to the grocery store to shop
  • I walked my children home from school
  • I rode my bike to the Farmers Market
  • I walked to the deli for lunch My spouse dropped me off at the Park-and-Ride to go to work
  • I carpooled to a meeting in Seattle

Often what we think of as 1 trip is actually 2 or more trips. For example, “I stopped to buy gas and a snack on my way home from work” counts as 2 trips: 1 trip from work to the gas station and another trip from the gas station to home.
