RideScore Active Schools is dedicated to fostering healthier and more active school environment on the Sunshine Coast.

Our program aims to encourage students to adopt active travel options, such as riding or scooting to and from school.

What’s RideScore?

RideScore is an innovative initiative designed to incentive and reward students for choosing active travel options. By participating in RideScore, students contribute to a healthier lifestyle for themselves and their communities, all while earning points and recognition for their efforts.

Council and We Ride Australia are partnering together to trial the RideScore program in eleven Sunshine Coast schools, expecting the participation of approximately 1,500 children.

Initially supported by a Federal grant from the Move it AUS program, Queensland Government and Stockland, this program continues to be funded by Council’s Transport Levy.

How does RideScore works?

Participating schools receive access to our user-friendly platform, where students can log their daily trips to school. The RideScore App uses personal sensors that send real-time notifications to parents/carers on the arrival and departure of students riding and scooting to and from school. Individual trips are recorded and rewarded at certain milestones.

Parents/carers of children attending the 11 participating schools will have the opportunity to register online. Upon registration, participating students will receive a personal sensor (beacon) to attach to their bicycle or scooter. The school’s bicycle storage facility is fitted with a Bluetooth reader that detects the signal from the sensor, triggering an immediate notification to the nominated contact when the student arrived at, or departed the school gate.

Data is collected by the online platform, so that incentives can be offered at certain milestones.

In addition to the digital platform, activities are planned throughout the school year to promote and encourage active travel to and from school.

The following 11 schools have been selected to participate in the region-wide trial in 2021. Further information on student participation will be provided on the respective school websites:

Get involved

The following nine schools have been invited to be part of the region-wide trial in 2022. More information on how students can participate will be made available through the schools.

  • Baringa State Primary School
  • Brightwater State School
  • Buddina State School
  • Caloundra State School
  • Chancellor State College
  • Coolum State School
  • Meridan State College
  • Nirimba State Primary School
  • Palmview State Primary School
  • Peregian Springs State School
  • Talara Primary College

Schools were chosen based on a comprehensive assessment of traffic and active travel, considering the following factors:

  • Availability of safe pathway infrastructure suitable for cycling and scooting around the school
  • History of non- traffic and parking congestion
  • Catchment area of the students enrolled at the school
  • School’s willingness to support the program.

We hope the program will be expanded and offered to additional schools in the future. However, the current trial only covers the 11 Sunshine Coast schools.

Schools wishing to register their interest in the program for future consideration can email [email protected].
