Join the Greener Future Challenge

Travelling around Surrey 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 record 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!

 The Greener Future Challenge is all about encouraging people to get around sustainably and help create a cleaner, greener county by travelling in ways that benefit the environment, health and your community, as well as helping the local economy too!

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 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 Surrey County Council can improve travel planning for everyone. By sharing GPS tracked journeys you are helping to make Surrey greener, cleaner, safer and more liveable for everyone. To find out more about what we do with your information please see our Privacy Policy.
