Earn rewards for your sustainable and active travel

Choose Your Way Warwick is a rewards programme designed to promote sustainable and active travel at the University of Warwick as part of the Future Transport Zone project managed by Transport for West Midlands.

It runs from 22nd March 2021 to 13th March 2022. During that time staff and students from the University of Warwick can download the free BetterPoints app, track their sustainable and active journeys into and around campus, and earn BetterPoints and BetterTickets as a result.

BetterPoints can then be redeemed for a whole host of retail vouchers or donated to charities.

Staff and students must register with their University of Warwick email address to join the programme.

Why automatic tracking?

Don't worry, BetterPoints aren't snooping on you! Automatic tracking allows us to collect a more comprehensive and accurate data set of your activities. Your data will be aggregated and anonymised across all Choose Your Way Warwick participants to help Transport for West Midlands and the University of Warwick better understand its members’ travel needs, habits and CO2 emissions. Better understanding means a better, safer and healthier campus for you to travel around and more tailored rewards for you to enjoy!
