Tell us about the social impact of your innovation. Please include both numbers and stories as evidence of this impact
System is currently being developed.
Problem: Describe the primary problem(s) that your innovation is addressing
This system will address a number of social issues in and around Fremantle -
Environment) Reduce the number of cars entering the Fremantle CBD and therefore emissions.
Space) Reduce the space / footprint used by cars.
Health) Improve the health of the community through encouraging people to cycle.
Homelessness) all revenue will be directed towards helping the homeless to no longer be homeless.
Social Issues) once Homelessness has been deemed no longer a social issue the revenue and resources can be directed at any other social issue in WA.
Actions: Describe the steps that you are taking to make your innovation a success. Include a description of the business model. What might prevent that success?
At present we are working with a number of organisations to clearly define the business structure and completing a formal business plan. We are also in the process of completing the Cyclefreo website which will be used to engage the community, government and business in the selection of bike station locations, cycle routes, pricing models and all other aspects of the business. Involving the community and crowdsourcing ideas will ultimately result in a better system and business for everyone.
Results: Describe the expected results of these actions over the next three years. Please address each year separately, if possible
2010) Bike System Design / System roll out
2011) Full localised Bike sharing system in place
2012) Reduction in local traffic and fund distributed towards social issues
