Case study Banksia Ignite Enabler challenge

Every day we hear about—or experience first-hand—the pressures of living with traffic congestion. More people are driving, and many of our cities roads are choking as a result. With significant population growth and urbanisation across all of Australia's major cities, more and more people need to get around. This means we need to work out new ways to get the most out of our existing transport infrastructure. Carpooling is a solution that will simply get more people into less cars and this was an idea that we wanted to explore through the 2018 Banksia Ignite Enabler Challenge. We are specifically looking for solutions that address: • fair cost-sharing between drivers and passengers • safety concerns • flexible pick-up and drop-off arrangements • participation by different vehicle types • scalability to meet future demand. The competition runs until November 2018 and the best solution will be awarded a $15,000 prize. Transurban will work with one or more of the winners to develop their idea with the view to potentially piloting and implementing it. About the Banksia Ignite Enabler The Banksia Foundation is a non-profit that works with industry and the community to promote excellence in sustainability.

We were excited to partner with Transurban for the inaugural Banksia Ignite challenge which promises to deliver on SDG 11–Sustainable Cities and Communities—helping make cities more inclusive, resilient and sustainable by significantly increasing car-pooling on Australian toll-roads.” Graz van Egmond CEO Banksia Foundation
