TravelWise Week runs from 16-22 September. It's part of European Mobility Week and this year the theme is ‘better connected’, which fits perfectly with Milton Keynes Council's ongoing work to expand the active travel network across the area.
We know that people who get around on foot, by bike and using public transport are better connected to their community, the natural world and the people and places around them. That’s why we’re celebrating TravelWise Week with a set of prize draws reflecting this year’s theme.
1. Refer a Friend – walking, wheeling and cycling are best enjoyed in company. Help make us all better connected by growing the BetterPoints community and inviting your friends, family and colleagues to join in. We’ll have three weekly prizes of 100,000 BetterPoints (that’s £100!). Every friend you refer, up to ten per week, will earn you an entry into the draw, which will take place on Thursdays 15, 22 and 29 September (start referring from Thursday 8!).
2. Car Free Day – every car-free trip of over a mile on Thursday 22 September will earn an entry into the draw for one of TWO 50,000 BetterPoints prizes. When you walk, wheel, cycle or take public transport, you are so much better connected to everyone around you. Leave the car at home and enjoy!
3. Top Prize – Eurostar makes us better connected to the continent, so you don’t have to fly to enjoy a trip to Europe. Everyone who tracks a car-free trip over a mile on three days between Thursday 22 September and Wednesday 5 October – and takes our short survey to opt in – will go into the draw for a £500 travel and accommodation voucher from Eurostar, plus £300 of spending money. Winner announced on Thursday 6 October (please note: the dates of this draw have been postponed due to the period of National Mourning).
