Ideas in Transit
Ideas in Transit was a five-year project running from October 2007 to September 2012 that applied User Innovation to the transport challenges faced by individuals and society. It was a unique collaboration between Government, Commercial and Academic thought leaders and their networks. It aimed to influence intelligent transport decisions at policy, social, personal and commercial levels.
