Join Changing Steps Cardiff
Getting to the University 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 spend your points on campus, with national retailers, or donate them to charity.
