Sutherland Shire: Sports Hopper

Sutherland Shire: Sports Hopper

At a glance.

SportsHopper was developed in conjunction with Transdev Australasia and Transport for NSW for the people of Sutherland Shire. SportsHopper was created with parents and children in mind, travelling to the Bellingara Netball Courts, every Saturday between 6.30am and 5.30pm. This service was designed to help ease congestion and provide relief to those travelling to the courts without the added stress of parking pressure and costs. The SportsHopper project, including white labelled app, marketing, and logistics were implemented in 5 weeks.

The Problem.

The SportsHopper project arose from the constant parking pressure around the Bellingara Netball courts in the Sutherland Shire.

The Solution.

Alongside Transdev and Transport for NSW, Liftango developed a point to hub model, so customers could be picked up and dropped at the courts. This model was developed to ensure the best chance of uptake, monitoring and trip time impact - and eventually would be re-configured to a meeting point-to-hub service. Initially, the trial began with three Sprinter Vans.

The Results.

The App was turned around in under 5 weeks, this included marketing materials, testing the service, white labelled app and driver training.
