Fietscalculator computes savings
How much can you save by forsaking the car in favour of the bicycle? This can be computed accurately by the Fietscalculator.
Fietscalculator is a project of the Eindhoven metropolitan authorities, in co-operation with the province of Noord-Brabant and the 21 towns in Zuidoost-Brabant, within the framework of the campaign Liever met de fiets!, aimed at promoting bicycle use in the region. Just enter the distance of a bicycle trip, frequency and the type of car into the calculator.
It will immediately calculate the difference in calories (also expressed as pies), how much Euro it costs and how much reduction in CO2, fine dust particles and nitrogen dioxide this means.
The module can also be integrated by others into their own website, for the time being only in Dutch. This website incidentally also provides a detailed survey of the provincial bicycle route network, with the option to create your own maps with for instance particular points of interest along the route.
