It's easyy to stay active in this city even in small ways, like when you're shuffling up subway steps or walking to a destination a few blocks away. Now, a popular transit website is helping to break down the payoff for being on the move.
Hopstop.com has a new feature that calculates the number of calories burned on a person's commute, based on where they get on and off the subway, bus or railroad. The walking portions of the route show how many calories a person will burn.
But the user can also change the route to lessen the transit commute and increase the walking portion in order to burn more calories. There's even an option to view how many calories are burned by bicycling a route.
To see how many calories you're burning on your commute -- or to find out how you can burn more calories -- visit hopstop.com.
