rMove is revolutionizing transportation planning by using in-app smartphone surveys and GPS data collection to reveal participants’ travel methods and needs.
How do you sign up? rMove is only usable by people selected to participate and requires a unique password to log in. Just download the app, follow the instructions, answer the survey questions, and rMove takes care of the rest!
Why participate using rMove? Agencies and transportation planners need to understand how, when, where, and why people travel to anticipate, prioritize, and plan for future transportation needs. Participating in a study that uses rMove helps your community and saves you time compared to older survey methods.
Want to learn more? Go to the rMove support website, which offers answers to questions and the fine print you’ve been hankering for. We take your privacy seriously and we are committed to GDPR-compliance. You can also find our complete privacy and data security policy, including how we protect your information, on our website.
And because honesty is always the best policy, we want you to know that rMove may use your location even when it’s not open (that’s how it does its magic). As a result, you may notice a decrease in your device’s battery life. This is normal and varies based on your phone’s age, battery health, and other conditions and use.

Ratings and Reviews
Not sure if data was sent
So i just completed the survey and hit ‘send data’, but it said ‘send data failed’ even though i’m connected to the internet. It didn’t give me a chance to re-send, so i don’t know if i wasted my time or not.
I’m giving 3 stars for now, because it was pretty easy to use, and the battery usage wasn’t as bad as people said it was. But it’ll be upgraded or downgraded depending on whether i receive the giftcard or not.
It asks for a password but does not give you a chance to create one
Can’t use it
I installed it, but probably won’t be able to do the survey because I can’t give it access to location services. The app keeps nagging me to do so, but the app doesn’t appear in the list in preferences. I’m running iOS 12.01 on an iPhone 7, so maybe the recent iOS update broke something. Too bad. Good idea that isn’t working.
UPDATE: Rmove popped up in location preferences just before the testing period was to begin. I’m glad, but it was very annoying to be nagged by the app for days without being able to address the need.
The app worked well for the survey, which was great. As others have pointed out it hits the battery hard, but I was less bothered because I keep my phone plugged in while driving and always have my laptop or a charger available. If you spend a lot of time without access to a recharge you are likely to wind up with a dead battery before the end of your day. If I had tried to use this app when I was traveling for the company I would have deleted it after the first day. It’s too hard on the battery for long days in and out of airports, trains and meetings.
