    • When prompted, please allow the app to temporarily use your phone’s location and motion sensors. This will allow the app to more accurately determine stops.
    • Then login to the app using your PIN.
    • Finally, select the person who will be using the app from the list of household members.
    • When your travel date starts, your stops will automatically begin to display on the “Stop List” page which is accessible by clicking on the “Review Stops” button.
  • Completing travel diary: online, over the phone, or via mailed diary?
    • If you are completing your travel diary in any of these three ways, there is little you need to do before your travel date.
  • Memory Jogger (optional).
    • Regardless of how you choose to participate, you may want to use a “Memory Jogger” sheet to help remind you of the stops you made on your travel date. You can download one here. When filling out your travel diary, you will be asked questions like: the purpose of each of your stops, how you got there, how long you were there, and how many people traveled with you.
