Trip Tracker

Welcome to Trip Tracker Program!

Trip Tracker Registration IS OPEN so REGISTER TODAY!-  See if your school is part of this amazing program!  Tracking calendars are also available to start tracking trips!  

What is Trip Tracker?
Trip Tracker is a program that engages school children and their parents in helping to reduce car traffic at schools and in surrounding neighborhoods. When participants carpool, ride the bus, bike, or walk to school, they earn Tracker Bucks that they can spend at participating Longmont businesses. Tracker Bucks are also accepted at many Boulder locations as well. 

How are Tracker Bucks calculated? 

Rewards are calculated at the rate of one Tracker Buck for every four trips. Add-ons/Bonus Bucks include:

  • A 2-buck bonus if students use alternative transportation for all trips in a given month
  • An extra buck per month for every 10-miles of "active" transportation, which means walking, biking, skating or scooting.  
NOTE - Participants must travel a minimum of a quarter-mile (.25 miles or approximately 2 blocks) to earn the "active transportation" extra buck, but it doesn't matter how close you live to school to earn normal Tracker Bucks. 
Trip Tracker is Great!
How Can Students and Staff Sign Up?

Step 1: Register online TODAY- Students (using their parents' help) and staff must register first. 

Step 2: Track Trips - After registering, begin keeping track of daily trips to and from school. Print out a calendar  to help keep track of trips, or develop your own system at home. When it comes time to report trips, it helps to have them recorded somewhere.

Step 3: Report Trips - At the beginning of each month, an online survey is sent to you that asks how participants got to and from school during the previous month. Tracker Bucks are calculated each month based on the information received from the survey. 

Step 4: Receive Tracker Bucks! - Once a month from October to May, rewards are distributed to participants on Tracker Bucks Distribution Days, usually during lunch. Participants who miss their chance to pick up bucks at school can receive them by US Mail by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:

Boulder County Transportation
c/o Trip Tracker
P.O. Box 471
Boulder, CO 80306

Step 5: Spend Trip Tracker Dollars! - Participants can spend their Tracker Bucks like real money at participating local Trip Tracker businesses
