Trip Tracker - Information For Businesses

Trip Tracker is good for your business, and it’s good for our community.Trip Tracker Program

Trip Tracker (TT) is a community-based, collaborative program that promotes safety, as well as environmental and physical health.

Benefits for Participating Trip Tracker Businesses

  • Provides business visibility. TT participants receive a new TT participating business list each month and can search the website for participating businesses.
  • Expands customer base. TT is a great way to introduce new patrons to your business, and it brings in the bucks. Kids usually bring adults with them when they spend Tracker Bucks, who also buy things too. Adults can earn Tracker Bucks too and need places to shop.
  • Highlights community involvement. TT businesses receive point of purchase and/or window clings, so all shoppers and community members know you’re a part of the TT program, as well as free marketing through various media.

Participating businesses agree to:

  • Get reimbursed $.50 on the dollar.

The amount of Tracker Bucks previous TT businesses have received ranges from $0 to $280 over the course of a school year. The average Tracker Bucks earned per month by participants is $7. TT businesses can place and/or lift a Tracker Buck limit at any time to help control the amount of Tracker Bucks received.

Reimbursement happens at your convenience. Just send us an invoice (we can provide a template) with the Tracker Bucks you’ve collected and Boulder County will put a check in the mail. A year-end reimbursement request will be sent to all participating business partners each June to ensure reimbursement occurs at least once each year.
