Earning BetterPoints is easy! Download the BetterPoints app from the App Store or Google Play.

It will track how you choose to get around and show how many points you’ve earned. Focus on your health and wellbeing and attend a variety of initiatives too and boost your BetterPoints. You can turn your points into high street shopping vouchers or donate them to your favourite charity!
