BetterPoints - Sunderland
Sunderland residents will be able to earn rewards for using more active and sustainable modes of transport. The city council has teamed up with BetterPoints, an app that tracks your travel movements via GPS using your smartphone and rewards you with points for using more sustainable modes of transport like walking, cycling and using public transport. Points can then be exchanged for rewards such as discounts in local shops, free coffees, vouchers or charity donations.
Sunderland users can sign up to the BetterPoints - Sunderland challenge, and will see points awarded, to anyone aged 14 or over, for active or sustainable journeys made around Sunderland, Washington, Hetton and Houghton. Active travel can include walking, cycling, running, or using an e-bike, while using public transport like the bus, metro or train counts as sustainable travel.
