The BVSD Trip Tracker Program
Who we are:
At BVSD Transportation, we care about how all students get to school, not just those who ride the school bus. TheTrip Tracker program expresses this by encouraging and
rewarding students who walk, bike, carpool or ride the RTD or school bus to
school. BVSD schools that participate in Trip Tracker share our commitment to reducing car traffic in front of schools to make our schools safer and healthier for our students.
How to participate:
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
Trip Tracker funding is limited and we are unable to add additional schools for this year.
About those Trip Tracker Dollars:
We have over 60 participating businesses and organizations that accept Trip Tracker Dollars like cash. The businesses include, book stores, toy shops, sporting goods stores, ice cream shops, rec centers, restaurants and an amusement center (mini-golf, go-carts, etc.). Trip Tracker buys those dollars back from the businesses at 50 cents on the dollar. Our first year was supported by three businesses that are still with us today --- Spruce Confections, Gateway Fun Park, and The Bookworm.
*Trip Tracker funding has come to us in part by a grant administered by the Denver Regional Council of Governments. DRCOG also brings the WaytoGo carpool networking program that is currently in place in all of our BVSD schools.
