rMove collects travel and trip information from invited participants. farMove is the long-distance version of rMove.
farMove will automatically detect when you make a one-way trip that’s longer than 50 miles. A few hours after you stop traveling at your destination, farMove will ask you a few questions about this trip. farMove will also ask a few questions the day after this trip. Any time you travel during your study period, you should keep your phone on you and keep location services turned on.
For this survey, a long-distance trip includes any one-way trip where you travel more than 50 miles from your home (or from your most recent destination) and stop in a new area for four or more hours. Examples of long-distance trips include:
If you travel to another city or region and then make short trips within the region (e.g. sightseeing in New York City), this counts as one long-distance trip.
If you travel to another city or region in the morning and then return home, this counts as two long-distance trips (e.g., the drive to Miami to drop your child off at college and then the drive home).
If you drive to Washington DC and stop overnight, this counts as two trips (e.g., the drive from Tampa to your hotel and the drive from your hotel to Washington DC).
