Walk, cycle, bus - and win!

28 February 2022

As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, we want to reward you for travelling around York in healthy and environmentally friendly ways. So as well as earning rewards for every minute that you walk, wheel, run and ride and every journey that you make by bus, we'll also be running THREE daily prize draws in March.

There will be three separate prize draws for 5,000 BetterPoints every day, with one BetterTicket entry per five minutes of travel by each mode. You can earn up to 10 BetterTickets per mode each day, entering you into the following day's draws for:


🚢🏽‍β™€οΈπŸ‘¨‍🦽 Walking and wheeling
🚴‍♀️ Cycling
🚌 Bus


Here's how it works: you cycle for ten minutes to the bus stop, lock your bike up and take a fifteen-minute bus ride into town, then walk for five minutes from the bus stop to one of York's many wonderful cafes. You earn two BetterTickets for the cycling draw, three entries into the bus draw and one BetterTicket for the walking and wheeling draw. And that's just on the way there!

One journey using three different modes of transport means you are in the draw for £15's worth of prizes. The next day, you just need to check your timeline to see if you're one of three lucky winners.

So why not try different ways to get around in March and give yourself a chance of winning every time you walk, cycle and take the bus?
