BVSD Trip Tracker encourages and rewards students and families for using alternatives to single family car transportation to BVSD schools. The program goal is to significantly reduce car traffic and associated air pollution in front of schools thereby enhancing student safety and health. Students are rewarded monthly for walking, biking, carpooling and riding either the school bus or RTD. Students receive Trip Tracker dollars that can be used like cash at over 60 local businesses.
Did you know that 'active transportation' (walking and biking to school) has a positive impact on cognitive tasks and academic performance?

If your school is on the list of participating schools below, you can register your children on this website and download monthly calendars to keep track of their trips back and forth to school. At the end of the month, participating families receive an email for each registered student asking them to report their total number of trips for the month via a simple survey (available on the website). We crunch the numbers and deliver boxes of Trip Tracker Dollars to each school to be distributed by parent volunteers to trip tracking students.
If your school is not on the list and you'd like to explore participating for the coming year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss possible next steps.
Students earn one Trip Tracker Dollar for every five 'Green Trips' trips to or from school. They earn an additional dollar for each twelve miles of walking or biking.
Where to Spend Your Trip Tracker Dollars:We have over 50 participating businesses and organizations that accept Trip Tracker Dollars like cash. The businesses include, bike shops, book stores, toy shops, sporting goods stores, ice cream shops, rec centers, restaurants and amusement/fun centers.
