What is the difference between trip purposes?

The RTP Trip Calendar allows you to log trips made for different purposes: 

  • Work – trips to and from work (work commute) 

  • Work Meeting/Errand – trips between work and another location for work purposes

  • School – trips to and from school (school commute) 

  • Personal – trips for personal, non-work reasons (appointments, errands, shopping, going to the park, visiting with family and friends, etc.)
