I appreciate Trip Tracker on so many levels: it reduces traffic around the school, it calms my boys before school, helps them decompress on the trip home and it’s given me insights on how they each handle money.

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 raffic 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 50 local businesses.
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 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, you can donate your dollars to any of these great local non-profit organizations. 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. You can click HERE to read about these organizations or click on the organization to go to it's website.
All trip tracker dollars collected by local businesses or donated to one of the non-profits mentioned above are reimbursed by Trip Tracker at 50 cents on the dollar. All of these dollars are fund raised each year with support coming from GO Boulder, Program Fees paid for by participating school PTO/As, parent fund raising and the Annual Trip Tracker Auction. We are always looking for additional funding so that we can make the program available to more schools.
