Travelling around Wokingham in a way that is good for the environment and your neighbourhood deserves more than just a pat on the back. With the BetterPoints app your sustainable journeys can earn you rewards every time you walk, wheel, run, cycle, or use public transport.

Earning BetterPoints is easy! Download the BetterPoints app from the App Store or Google Play. It will track how you choose to get around and show how many points you’ve earned. You can turn your points into high street shopping vouchers or donate them to your favourite charity!

How can we help you to stay motivated?

With BetterPoints you can see your points accumulate in the app. Check out the rewards you can earn here. We will also share news of what is going on in your area to help you maintain your active and sustainable travel habit. We've got regular prize draws, plus we'll have campaigns, competitions and giveaways throughout the challenge.

How much information do I need to share to sign up?

When you first register to use the BetterPoints app, it will ask you to provide personal details to get you started. This includes your name, email address, year of birth, and postcode. We also ask you to create a secure password for accessing the BetterPoints app and protecting your account. You will be asked to consent to your geo-location data being captured by allowing the app to access "Location" and "Motion & Fitness". Allowing this is essential for calculating your activities and rewards. All location data is anonymised, aggregated and only used for reporting so that Wokingham Borough Council can improve travel planning and so we can make the app better. By sharing tracked activities you are helping to make Wokingham a greener, cleaner, safer and more liveable for everyone.
