Project title:
Maas, Transport interoperability delivering solutions for Melb's largest ever conference
Description of the project:

Melbourne has been chosen to host the 2023 Rotary International Convention, with more than 20,000 Rotary members coming from all over the world to attend. The convention will be hosted across two venues the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) and Rod Laver Arena. The challenge of transporting 20,000 attendees across the venues with ease and across multiple modes is a challenge that will be put to a MITI team. The team will consider all forms of transport, public, private, multiple modes and autonomous vehicles, buses (and maybe even the helicopters then) and how to integrate that to ensure safe and efficient mass movement with minimum delays. As well as how all the modes could work together, you would also look as MaaS (Mobility as a Service) so that people can customise their travel journey.
