This paper presents results from an in situ user study aimed to explore the effect of a mobile app on supporting eco transport choices by citizens of an urban area. We provided eight participants with a mobile app deploying a novel combination of goal-setting, self-monitoring, rewards and sharing features in order to observe, over a month period, relevant changes in their transport choices and habits. Overall, we observed that the digital intervention produced an increase of sustainable transport choices of 14% and contributed to raise participants' environmental awareness, particularly regarding the consequences of their daily transportation choices.
