IT for Public Engagement
Effective public involvement is crucial for planning and implementing transport projects, especially in complex urban environments. It generates better ideas by providing fresh insights and intense local knowledge, and helps generate political support by listening and responding.
I’ve completed several projects using information technology to make public involvement more efficient and effective, including:
- Transport games for education and engagement (BusMeister, Ringstrasse150, Grr-Grr-Bike)
- Crowdsourced-transport.com – library of techniques
- Internet-based information (websites, WIKIs)
