Linking Logan - Getting people out of their cars

Supported By: 
Logan City Council

Best hack that helps Logan residents to get around. Your hack could help identify gaps in the public transport network or allow residents to compare travel times for the transport modes available to them. As long as your hack looks to address transportation and mobility challenges in Logan, you are limited only by your imagination and your data hacking skills.

Ideas: Transit information combined with ABS data and Go-Card transaction records could be used to determine how long a journey would take using public transport, and encourage public transport use by showing the number of people who already use it to make that journey. Bicycle network, traffic, and public transport data could be used to compare modal travel times.


Eligibility Criteria

Must make use of at least one open dataset from Logan’s Open Data Portal:

The idea was to develop a mobile app to assist in discovering the hidden gems within a local council or city area.

Much like how the new Pokemon GO game has stops that you can check in at that correlate to real life places, the Discovery Your City app would include historically and culturally significant locations within the the specified area. Additionally, it would have provision for residents to submit their own hidden gems to be added to the program, such as great restaurants or social gathering places.
