Tiff was one of the early adopters of the Choose How You Move BetterPoints challenge and joined in July 2018. She would use her car 5 days a week for work and leisure.
Since joining she has completely transformed the way she gets around - thanks to a combination of being incentivised by the BetterPoints rewards and using the Choose How You Move travel planning app. You can download it from your app store or take a look at the browser version here.
Here is what she said about how she’s has been motivated to change:
"The Choose How You Move Travel planning app is great. It helps me plan the most sustainable journey to make. We are a two-person household, and share a car. We were going to buy a second car however using the travel planning app meant I found enough alternative transport methods that I don't have to.
I live in Enderby and work in Leicester City at the UHL LRI, I cycle a mile to the park and ride and catch the 203 electric bus to work and back. When it's fair weather I walk the mile to Carlton Park and use the Santander bikes which are equipped with assisted actions that my regular bike doesn't.
As a recovering cancer patient, I find this function most beneficial as the cycle journey to work is 10 mile round trip. The travel planning app and BetterPoints have not only saved me money by not having to buy a secondary vehicle but rewards me financially for walking, taking the bus and cycling. It's a win-win! I enjoy earning points which I trade for Amazon vouchers or donate to the MS Society which is a charity close to my heart.” - Tiff from Enderby
