Description

This application was released for attendees of the ACT 2010 International Conference held in Palm Springs, CA from the 29th to the 31st of August, 2010. It remains on the App Store as a demonstration of the capabilities of Avego technology. While the app will show scheduled information for the SunBus public bus and the Avego/VPSI shuttles, these are for display purposes only. The Pick Me Up button will function but will not result in any response from Avego at this time.

This app encouraged users to come to the conference car free and utilize the fantastic service Avego and VPSI offered. It brought together for the first time the best of the Avego Shared Transport, Futurefleet and Vanpooling software applications, the high tech Avego hardware installed in the VPSI shuttles and attendee iPhones.

By utilising the systems developed at Avego, this app let users book a ride from the Renaissance Esmeralda Hotel to the nearby shops and restaurants. They were then free to enjoy the high class shopping and taste the fantastic local cuisine. Once finished, attendees could use the app once more to request a VPSI shuttle pick you up at your nearest stop and bring you back to the comfort of your hotel room.

The convenience of this system means attendees did not have to worry about when the next shuttle was arriving at their stop. Through SMS communication, the user was kept informed of when the shuttle was approaching the preferred pickup point. Once the ride was been booked, we sent a bespoke PIN which the user gave to the driver so he could ensure he had picked the correct person up at the stop. In this way, Avego and VPSI were able to ensure no attendees got left behind!

However, the app did more than interact with the Avego/VPSI shuttle that ran at select times throughout the evenings and nights of the conference. This bespoke ACT 2010 app also extracted scheduled information from Sunbus, a local bus operator who's Line 111 service runs right in front of the Renaissance Esmeralda Hotel. This bus was an alternative to the Avego/VPSI shuttle that was able to take users to the same shops as the shuttle over a wider range of hours.

The Avego/VPSI shuttle services were an incredible success. Including airport shuttle services, VPSI/Avego delivered a total of 529 trips for the 270 attendees, resulting in a remarkable 43% modal shift in airport journeys alone.

The total reduction in VMT at the conference from the services provided was calculated at 7, 488 miles, with a total passenger miles delivered of 5145 miles (VMT reduction greater than passenger miles due to reduced usage of taxi services and other deadhead miles).

Thanks to all who assisted with the development, implementation and running of the service. We hope you enjoy this demonstrator.

Kind Regards,

The Avego Team
