As residents of Brisbane, it is our responsibility to keep Brisbane clean, green and sustainable. We have so many choices that can impact environmental outcomes both locally and globally. Keeping Brisbane clean and green is all about making our city more sustainable for our children and their children to follow. But we need to start small and make better choices with our environment and that starts with you and me.
Which is where we come in. Freedom Fighters. As a team, we have designed a web app for GOVHack 2017 which allows you to plan your journey and we weigh out our options to see whether public transport or your car is a better means of transport. It takes in consideration distance, time, traffic, events that could impact travel time, cost of fuel and car maintenance and which option least affects the environment.
Significant growth is also expected across the region which may add to congestion in the years ahead. How can this information help reduce the impacts growth may have on congestion and help commuters to have a better travel experience?
Vision: Around 60% of Redlands residents, 70% of Logan and 20% of Brisbane’s employed residents work outside of their Local Government Areas. Transport is not only a local issue, it is one that affects the entire region every day.
Taking real action on traffic congestion, while delivering smoother suburban streets, means getting residents home quicker and safer. Combining this with world-class public
and active transport means more buses for the suburbs, fewer cars on the road, quicker, more comfortable trips, healthier people and environment and more travel options for residents regardless of where they live or work.
