Tomorrow’s Transport Today: Mobility On-demand

Following his presentation at the Transportation Group Conference, Roger will discuss the benefits of On-Demand Public Transport Solutions in addressing real world travel problems.

Using the Case Study of the NSW Government On-Demand Public Transport Trials, his team and partners, have developed a new public transport offering to make travel more efficient for passengers and more efficient for government to operate. This new ‘on-demand’ transit service, using technology enabled minibuses running on flexible routes, has been developed under the NSW Future Transport Technology Initiative to support Sydney’s response to the transport challenges we are experiencing through rapid population growth.

The service is being tested and will be launched in early 2018 for people traveling to and from the Macquarie Park precinct, one of Sydney’s employment, education and leisure hubs. It will transport people within a 10km radius of the precinct, who will schedule, pay and track their journey to and from the precinct using a mobile app.

The pilot will provide valuable insights for the future development of similar services throughout Australia, New Zealand and internationally. This presentation will further discussion around this topic.
