We enable Business Improvement Districts to introduce sustainable travel options that drive footfall and visitor-flow, whilst minimising queueing and overcrowding.
With ‘You. Smart. Thing.’ BIDs and local businesses can work together to offer personalised, door-to-door travel advice and itineraries that improve visitor experience.
We believe health, wellbeing and economic prosperity depend on physical community engagement. We use online, to bring people back offline. Back to the high street. Back to business. Back to each other.
We enhance awareness of sustainable travel options in order for people to access local services across wards and between regions more easily. Our travel assistant platform delivers personalised low-carbon routing options, travel demand management and model shift by ingratiating with businesses, education, healthcare and social care services in an easily adopted but highly tailored way, promoting community-driven sustainable travel to achieve net-zero.
The ‘You. Smart. Thing.’ travel assistant is an easily deployed low-cost software-as-a-service solution. It enables Local Authorities to offer communities & visitors personalised Covid-conscious active travel options that promote cycling hubs, walking routes, public transport and reduce traffic congestion.
Our collaborative ecosystem, online dashboard and API provide a real-time ‘travel forecast’ of people’s intended travel. This enables you to deliver safe, secure, accessible transit by fostering partnerships between national agencies, neighboring authorities, transport operators and destinations.
We enable authorities (and large employers) to monitor and influence workforce travel impact and progress towards a ‘net zero’ environment; drive down travel costs, improve workplace engagement, automate multi-modal travel scheduling and booking with expense reporting & claims.
Includes ‘EV Assist’
Our EV Assist project team focuses on integrating new charge point operators, enabling the travel assistant platform to deliver highly personalised journey itineraries for electric vehicle users, based on charge point availability and the individual’s reason for travel. The EV journey requirements we capture can be securely shared with charge point operators, allowing them to offer reservations, and giving visitors the assurance that they can use an electric vehicle without worrying about range anxiety, no matter how far they’re traveling from.
“The online travel assistant and travel forecast analysis forms a core part of the ‘Tap Travel’ solution we deployed for Dumfries and Galloway Council. It showed how they can achieve an emissions reduction of 1,152 CO2 tonnes, alongside cost savings of up to £455,000, across 3000 council employees.”
