Tap for Safe Routes to School
As an independent charity, we rely on the generous financial support from the public, the bicycle industry and We Ride Australia members, to continue to develop and deliver our programs. Your support of the Safe Routes to School initiatives including the RideScore Active Schools program, means together we will enable our children and young people to walk, scoot and ride a bike to school and make our communities safer and healthier places for everyone.
We Ride Australia has partnered with some of our leading bike shops and retailers, to raise the resources necessary to research, plan, develop and implement a national Safe Routes to School program. Our Tap’n’Go partners have agreed that it is important to ensure our kids become more active during their journey to and from school each day.
Our Tap’n’Go stores are ready with a small electronic Tap’n’Go donation unit installed at their register. All you need to do is tap your Visa or Mastercard to make a donation which goes directly to Safe Routes to School. We encourage you to show your support for them, by making your next bicycle related purchase from their store.
FAQ’s about Tap’n’Go for Safe Schools
How does it work?
During your next visit to your local participating bike shop, simply look for the Tap’n’Go donation unit on the counter. Simply tap your Visa or Mastercard onto the unit like a normal credit card purchase at your local grocery store and a donation will be transferred to Safe Routes to School. Each unit is setup differently, so check the display to see the amount of the donation you are being asked to make (generally set to $2). You can tap multiple times to make a larger donation.
