Problem Statement

How might we create benefits for residents who use alternative transport rather than cars?



    Customer / Problem

    Problem 1: Traffic congestion on the Northern Beaches.

    Problem 2: Reduced trade for small to medium business during the weekdays in Manly.

    Can there be a more REWARDING way to travel to and from work?

    To help improve:

    1. Environmental issues
    2. Economic/productivity loss
    3. Health issues
    4. Support for local business
