|Bike/Walk Reward Program|
Do I Qualify?
All employees, faculty and staff at CATMA member employers who receive salary and eligible for employer-paid benefits can register to participate in our Bike/Walk Reward Program. This includes: CCRPC, Champlain College, Fletcher Allen and the University of Vermont. "Core downtown Burlington district" employees at the State of Vermont may participate as part of CATMA's Pilot Program.
How Does the Program Work?
The Bike/Walk Reward program requires you to work at one of the following locations: the Fletcher Allen ACC Medical Center Campus, UHC Campus, One Burlington Square, UVM Main Campus, Champlain College, Champlain College Lakeside, State of Vermont downtown Burlington offices, or the CCRPC office in Winooski.
The program rewards you for walking and/or bicycling to and from work at least three days each week for two 4-week periods. The weeks within each 4-week block MUST be consecutive. The first week of your second 4-week block, however, doesn't have to directly follow the last week of the first 4-week block. If you are out of work for three or more days in one week due to vacation, illness or off-site training and conferences, or inclement weather then you must record that week and the reason on the "week(s) out" line on the Bike/Walk Reward Card. You still need to complete a total of 8 weeks of biking and/or walking however, under the above circumstances, your weeks do not have to be consecutive.
You must register with CATMA to receive the rewards of the program. To register, Click here. Once registered, you will receive a welcome packet to include a Bike/Walk Card on which you'll record your bike/walk dates. When you have completed the two four-week blocks, return the card to the CATMA office to redeem your reward.
Keep in mind, if you're biking or walking to work but need transportation during the day/ evening to get to an appointment when/where bus service isn't available, the CarShare Vermont program is a complimenting service.
