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, City of Burlington , Fletcher Allen and the University of Vermont.

How Does the Program Work?  

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 note 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. Once registered, we'll send you 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.

Where do I turn in my completed Bike-Walk card?
  

Please mail CATMA your completed Bike/Walk Reward card within two weeks of completion. FAHC and UVM employees may use intercampus mail; addressed to CATMA, 20 West Canal Street Ste C9, Winooski.  Note, you can also bring your card to the CATMA office, but call first to make sure we are here.

All requested information on the Bike/Walk Reward Card, including your signature, MUST be filled out completely for your card to be processed.

 

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.  Click here to find out more about carsharing (which is different than carpooling).

What are the Rewards I can choose from?  

Every time you complete two 4-week blocks simply check off on your card which reward you would like to receive. Each reward is valued at $15.00.  Your reward choices are:

Area Bike and Walking Maps
CATMA is pleased to partner with the Burlington Walk Bike Council and several transportation partners in providing this map. The map covers Burlington, South Burlington, and parts of Colchester and Winooski. The map is designed to assist bicyclists and pedestrians to navigate the safest, most comfortable route to their destinations. It includes information on mass transit, recreational areas, environmental sites and general points of interest.

BlueCross BlueShield of Vermont has produced a Burlington Walks map, which contains over a dozen different walks with a brief description of each walk's route and historical and natural points of interest.

Contact CATMA if you'd like a copy of these maps.
