Liftango Tackling UWA’s Parking Problems

UWA launches with new carpooling technology.

Liftango Tackling UWA’s Parking Problems

Amongst a flurry of launches in February, Liftango’s most recent deployment ventures West. Partnering with the University of Western Australia. Liftango is excited to work alongside it’s newest client.

Located on UWA’s Crawley Campus, the university will provide students and staff with guaranteed spaces to those who carpool into the university.

Why guaranteed spaces?

The main problem is the overcrowding of carparks. Unnecessary parking congestion taking a toll on students resulting in a decline of on-time attendance. It was no question that the app would be open to not just students, but also the staff of the university. As the university aims to provide more transport options, they chose Liftango due to their ability to create a trusted and exclusive network for the staff and students of UWA.

“We have seen a trend with universities that have rising concerns of overcrowding carparks and transport access for their students and staff...both Liftango and UWA place importance on solving these problems whilst aiming for a smart yet sustainable outcome,” said COO Trystan Eeles.

Co-creating a Sustainable Future

It was a simple choice to forge the partnership between UWA and Liftango., UWA understands what their students, staff and campus need, and Liftango was able to provide the technology platform to co-create a localised solution. This collaboration will produce a carpooling solution capable of adapting to the requirements of the campus.  Together the result was a carpooling app that provided guaranteed parking for students, as this was a high pain point for them, whilst also rewarding them for their behaviour with petrol vouchers.

How Does it Work?

Liftango uses approved email domains or optional SSO security protocols to create an exclusive or ‘Trusted Network’. This assures only verified users can access the carpooling network and creates confidence within the co-branded University Carpooling Service.

About On Demand Transport

As an emerging transportation mode, on demand transport (ODT) spans both public and private application. Providing commuters with convenient, flexible transport options, ODT encourages a reduction of single occupancy vehicle use. Using smartphone technology, the balance of power can now shift back in favour of the passenger, allowing them to schedule a pick where and when they want. Allowing for easy & reliable connection to high-frequency, mass-transit networks, on demand transport can extend the public transit coverage and increase utilisation of valuable infrastructure.
