Trip Tracker

Welcome to Trip Tracker!

Trip Tracker is Great!

Trip Tracker is a program that engages school teachers, staff, students and their parents in helping to reduce motor vehicle traffic at school and in surrounding neighborhoods. When participants carpool, take the bus, bike, or walk to school, they earn Tracker Bucks by keeping track of their trips and reporting them to Boulder County. Earned Tracker Bucks are delivered at school each month and can be spent at locally-owned businesses around Boulder County. Check out the Trip Tracker FAQ for more information. 

Getting started and tracking trips is easy! 

STEP 1: REGISTER - Students (with help from parents) as well as staff/teachers from participating schools must register once per school year.

STEP 2: TRACK TRIPS - After registering, begin keeping track of daily trips to and from school. Print out a tracking calendar to help, or develop your own system. When it comes time to report trips, it helps to have them recorded somewhere. You can track trips for the month you registered and moving forward. Prior months' trips cannot be reported

STEP 3: REPORT TRIPS -  Early each month, the Trip Tracker Tracks eNewsletter is sent to registered participants. The eNewsletter is an invitation to report the previous month's trips and also provides the participant's Tracker ID number that is necessary for reporting. Each reporting period last approximately one-week. Do not turn-in paper calendars to school unless you don't have a computer at home. 

STEP 4: TRACKER BUCK DISTRIBUTION DAY - Once a month from October to May, Tracker Buck rewards are distributed to participants at school during non-academic time (usually at lunch). 

STEP 5: SPEND TRACKER BUCKS! - Participants can spend their Tracker Bucks like real money at participating Trip Tracker Businesses. 

DON'T FORGET! - You can visit Longmont schools and/or businesses by riding Longmont area buses for FREE!
