Walk + Bike Challenge Tracking Options

The City of Portland Safe Routes to School program has developed three convenient ways for students to track their active commute trips to school each day.  You select the tracking method that will work best for your school. 

  • Classroom Poster - Poster for each classroom to be taped to the wall.  Each day, students who arrive to school by an active mode circle the mode they have used.
  • Monthly Scorecard - One scorecard for each student.  Students are responsible for filling out the card throughout the month and turning it in at the end of May.
  • Weekly Scorecard - Each participating student picks up a new card each week (4 cards total).  Students mark their active commute trips during the week and turn their cards in at the end of each week for a prize.
