Join the Choose How You Move Challenge

Travelling around Leicestershire 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 you can earn rewards when 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 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!

Watch a short video here or follow these instructions to get you started:

Download and register for the BetterPoints app from the App Store or the Google Play Store

You will automatically be added to the Choose How You Move challenge (if you live in Leicester or Leicestershire). There will be a welcome message about this on your timeline in the app.

Record your activities using Automatic tracking to start earning BetterPoints and BetterTickets!

If you live outside the county but are commuting in and would like to participate please contact customer care for a code to add you to the challenge: customercare@betterpoints.uk

How can we help you to stay motivated?

With BetterPoints you can see your points accumulate in the app. We will also share news of what is going on in your area to help you to stay active. We've got regular prize draws, plus we'll have campaigns, competitions and giveaways throughout the programme. 

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, location, 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 turn on auto-tracking: all GPS data is anonymised, aggregated and only used for reporting so that Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council can improve travel planning for everyone. By sharing GPS tracked journeys you are helping to make Leicestershire greener, cleaner, safer and more liveable for everyone. To find out more about what we do with your information please see our Privacy Policy
