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.
The National Center for Safe Routes School has some great information on the importance and benefits of walking or biking to school including this infographic . Please check out what they have to say by clicking on this LINK.
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 50 local businesses.
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.
Along with our list of over 50 participating businesses where you can spend your dollars like cash, this year we are offering a short list of great local non-profit organizations that you can choose to support with your dollars. You can choose to donate your dollars through the monthly survey OR you can mail as many of yourTrip Tracker dollars as you please directly to them at the addresses provided.
