The Hop! app was developed by EnviroCentre and the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority as a tool to encourage students to walk to school. Hop! is a bilingual, progressive web-app that helps make the walk to school more fun through interactive features. App users can track kilometres travelled, while being motivated by engaging illustrations, group challenges, and milestones.

The Hop! Toolkit was created for school travel planning facilitators to promote active transportation using the Hop! app. The Hop! Toolkit includes a User’s Guide with an overview of the app’s features and instructions for how school travel planning facilitators can access Hop! account features to create teams. The Hop! Toolkit also includes ideas and resources for promoting Hop! at the regional level.

The development of the Hop! app was made possible through financial support from Green Communities Canada and the Government of Ontario.
