Environmental challenge(s) met
Outline of project:
Funded by Innovate UK, NaviGoGo is Scotland's first 'mobility as a service' (MaSS) web application. Designed for and by young people, the app is currently on a 6 month trial from October 2017 to March 2018 and will be used by 100 people in Dundee and North East Fife during this time. The aim of the trial will be to allow participants to access streamlined and personalised information; as well as provide payment and fulfilment services for trains, taxis, bike schemes, buses, car clubs, and walking - all on one app. It is hoped by combining all these transport modes in one app NaviGoGo will increase safety for users and simplify timetables for travelers.
The app currently features a personalised journey planner with fare calculator, payment function, deal matching capabilities, fare splitting tools for taxi journeys, local transport information, and means for incentivising positive/sustainable travel choices.
