Transport Infratech: The use of mobility technologies to help our built environment, and enable more convenient and sustainable outcomes.
Shared Mobility: The shared use of a vehicle, bicycle, or other transportation modes. It is a transportation strategy that allows users to access transportation services on an as-needed basis.
Connecting People Is The Catalyst For Change.
Doubting shared mobility in the play of Infratech?
Well according to PinsentMasons, 87% of investors say that transport will have the most significant impact on infrastructure technology, so let’s dive into why.
- Parking is a major problem shared mobility solves through carpooling, demand-responsive buses and simulated experiences
- The built environment wastes too much money and space on parking
- Sharing is vital to improving the utilisation of space
- By providing a platform solution that incentivises shared travel, organisations can spend less on unnecessary parking infrastructure
- By employing Infratech as a strategy, developers have a way to challenge the need to maintain current parking ratios, resulting in major savings when reducing podium or below ground car park construction
Let’s take a look at this actually in play, take Lendlease for example.
In Lendlease Randwick Campus Redevelopment Integrated Acute Services Building (IASB) Addition Report. Lendlease, as of June 2019, became a carbon-neutral company, and this had a big play with Infratech.
Lendlease engaged Arup, to develop a transport strategy because of the work conducted in the Randwick Campus Development. Details like implementing measures to minimise the impact on general traffic and bus operations.
This was because roads would be closed, traffic and parking would be highly congested.
Like Lendlease, implementing green initiatives and transport demand management strategies are of high importance to developers.
Common outcomes are reducing their footprint and the costs associated with parking during and post-construction.
TRANSPORT INFRATECH: The New Strategy for Organisations.
- Simulations - One of the biggest risks in implementing a solution is overcompensation and wasting resources. Simulating every possible outcome from available data, helps you make data-driven decisions, and create tailored solutions that fit local challenges.
- Carpooling - having a carpooling program, does not guarantee people will carpool. And this can invalidate one's transport strategy. Today’s modern-day driver won’t carpool unless it is made easy for them. By designing a solution around a compelling user experience you take the hassle out of successfully launching your carpool program.
- On-Demand Buses - Our technology is designed to suit public transport agencies or private shuttles. By providing more convenient and affordable alternatives, cities can unlock their grid-locked parking, provide better access and give commuters more sustainable travel options.
- Smart Parking Solutions- Imagine charging for parking based on the number of people sharing a vehicle? This incentivises better use of existing parking assets and avoids unnecessary costs.
The program participants will work alongside Taronga Ventures and RealTechX.
