Transport Digital Accelerator has launched and supported a wide range of Innovation Challenges to call upon startups and businesses to explore how technology can be used to deliver innovative solutions.
In 2020, the Transport Digital Accelerator called upon startups and businesses to take part in the challenge to explore how we might use data and insights to inform decisions and put in place actions to make travelling in the city safer for women at night.
We explored where the opportunities are in Mobility as a Service (MaaS). MaaS is a dynamic, growing market with small and large players working together to give customers improved travel options that suit the individual needs and circumstances, not just on main transport routes.
In 2018, we explored where the opportunities are in reducing the amount of congestion caused by Inner city freight deliveries. We researched and designed a challenge that addressed how white van freight deliveries were measured and operated in the city, with the aim of improving the number of trips and kilometres that were driven in our city streets.
