Re:route is a new iPhone app that gamifies walking and cycling around London, by awarding points for these actions.  These points can later be redeemed for store discounts and rewards.

Recyclebank and Transport for London have partnered to release an iPhone app that gives users points when they walk or cycle to work in London. re:route uses gamification to promote a healthy, eco-friendly lifestyle, encouraging users to travel by bike or on foot to help the environment and burn calories.  They input their route’s start and end points to discover ways that mix and match public transport, walking, cycling, calories burnt, carbon offset, bonus points and more, and then choose the route that’s right for them.

Re:route uses a timer and GPS tracking to make sure they’re really completing the journey by walking or cycling. When users have reached their destination, they are rewarded with Recyclebank points. When they have earned enough points, they can redeem them for discounts and rewards from Marks & Spencers, Haven Holidays, Cineworld, and more.
