Welcome to the My Travel Impact Challenge!
What would convince you to change your travel behaviours? Weather? Carbon? This challenge aims to develop an app that provides users with information about their travel patterns, and quantifies the impact of their choices. Users could be presented with a summary of their daily trip (eg. distance travelled in the last week, the last month and the last year) and how their mode choice behaviour has impacted them (time) and the wider community. The app could also allow users to interrogate their carbon footprint and compare this to other mode choices (eg. driving, riding and walking) and the relative savings/cost of carbon and money as a result of their choice.
Users could also be presented with historical and forecast weather data from Bureau of Meteorology, suggesting days to consider walking/cycling based on weather patterns/predictions. The app may rely on users submitting their travel data from their smart card (eg. Myki in Melbourne).
Next group thing will be xx. (Looking for this sort of thing, or next team meeting)

About this pad:
Edits you make are in your selected color, but you can wipe color after editing phase is done (click the color wheel up top after highlighting text you want to de-colorize). There is a time slider so you can recover things that might have been deleted.
We can share a read-only version on the public face, and use the editing link for people AT the event if anyone is concerned about trolls.
