Walking and Cycling Route Planning Tool

Welcome to HASTe's online Walking/Cycling Route Planning Tool. This tool can help you plan your walking or cycling routes to and from school, and produce and share finalized routes with your school community.

Please take a moment to read the brief instructions below on using the Route Planning Tool - you can access more detailed instructions on how to create routes by clicking on the red Help? button on the tool itself. If you need further assistance or have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us or sign up for a free Walking School Bus/Bicycle Train webinar.

Using the Route Planner

In order to create, save and view routes and maps on the Route Planning Tool, please complete this online form to send us your request to register. We'll set you up and get back to you shortly.

Creating Your Routes

You can plot all your routes to or from school. The routes you create will provide a distance, along with a calculation of calories burned and greenhouse gas emissions avoided by walking or cycling rather than driving. Each route is named, saved, can be modified at a later date, and can be shared with your school or made public if you desire.

Making Notes

The Route Planner allows you to add info markers to your route or map. These markers can be used to highlight intersections or other features along your route. You can also attach notes to a marker, providing further information or making recomendations for other members of your school community.

Help!

Help is always available. Look for the Help? link on each Route Planner pages. If you need further assistance or still have questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
