What counts as a "journey"?
Also, if you use more than one sustainable mode of travel on your way to/from work or out and about on business you can count each mode as a separate journey. For example: you walk 1 mile to the bus stop and then take a 10 mile bus ride to work. You can log a walking journey and a separate bus journey.
Working from home? - this counts too! Just select this option from the list of modes and enter the distance that you would have travelled.

How are the carbon, calorie and cost savings calculated?
Calorie savings are based on NHS figures for average walking and cycling activity. Cost calculations are based on AA data regarding the cost of running a car, and use approximate figures based on the average car.
