The Getting About Finder is a transport portal that aims to develop journey information for people utilising community based transport. The Public Transport Victoria Journey Planner includes public transport information but there is no centralised tool available for community transport, which provides mobility for people with disabilities and the frail aged. In addition, the portal could accommodate car pooling to provide transport options for a wider community demographic.
This afternoon I was invited to conduct a business planning session for project participants, with the aim of identifying milestones to be delivered over a period of five years.
The workshop will assist in the development of a business plan that will identify the first five years of the project, including milestones and funding sources. The Getting About Finder meets a community need and I forward to seeing the project develop into the future.
