This event took place on November 4th. View the recording on YouTube


Using the trial in Sydney's Bondi as a case study, join Moovit's Juan Carbonell and Waverly Council's Leo Huertas in this webinar on planning for and optimising mobility using digital twin model. The kerbside represents extremely valuable real estate in urban spaces, competing for space in dense and busy urban environments are amenties for placemaking, parking, public transport, micromobility and cycling infrastructure and even outdoor/alfresco dining.

Maximising efficiency and convenience is critical for authorities who are pushing for better transport choices, reduced congestion better traffic flows and enhanced people-focussed spaces to support liveability, economic activity and road safety.  

In what Moovit considers to be a flagship project in Asia-Pacific, they are working with Waverly Council and Transport for New South Wales on Australia's first dedicated Pick-Up & Drop-Off (PUDO) Bays in Bondi, Sydney. They will also be integrating with up to 20 mobility providers to provide more convenient transport choices to users and ensure the efficient use of the kerbside through data-driven decision making.  

Key Topics to be discussed. : 

  1. Planning dedicated curbside and integrating into the digital realm (digital twins)
  2. Supporting user behaviour through MaaS and new mobility data sets
  3. Accelerating the convenience and safety of mobility through better connected journeys (micromobility, active transport, etc)
