Addressing community transport needs through geographic data

Today I attended a Geovation workshop about addressing community transport needs through geographic data, skills and expertise. One of the schemes showcased was Cyclescape, helping cycling groups around the UK consider and improve cycling infrastructure. Cyclescape will be available later this year. Another presentation which caught my attention was MySociety’s FixMyTransport Mobile App which makes reporting a transport problem, like a broken seat on a bus, hassle-free and on-the-spot, and ensures the reporting and response are public so the transport company is held to account. Also, there was an excellent presentation from Mission:Explore which, through playful challenges, aims to increase use of the 13,000 miles of national cycle paths available for free to the public. The project is being launched in October.
