Bicyclists and pedestrians encouraged to download Virginia Tech MOVES smartphone app
October 5, 2015
Community members who walk and/or ride a bike to and from campus are asked to provide feedback via the new Virginia Tech MOVES app.
The free app uses iPhone and Android GPS support to track users’ bicycle and walking routes. It's anonymous and simple to use .
Feedback will be used to develop the university's new Parking and Transportation Master Plan.
iPhone users can download the app through the App Store, and Android users through Google Play.
Community members can also share their opinions about parking and transportation at Virginia Tech by:
- Submitting comments via the online comment form.
- Liking the Parking and Transportation Master Plan Facebook page and sharing opinions there.
- Participating in a town hall meeting in October (details forthcoming).
The Parking and Transportation Master Plan project is expected to wrap up in spring 2016, with the publication of a plan that addresses traffic service and parking conditions and recommends a phased approach for establishing a campus that fully integrates and accommodates the needs of vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic.
