Minda, Inc. received a total of $5000 from TravelSMART grants. This was used to buy and implement a new electronic car pooling and fleet booking system, with the aim of reducing the size and use of the existing organisational car fleet of 90 vehicles.
The system enables carpooling, by linking staff members who are travelling to the same or nearby destination. It also links with local public transport to ensure staff members are provided with details of the safest, greenest and most active travel available.
The project has resulted in a reduction of 3 fleet vehicles, an annual saving of between $24,000 and $30,000. Fuel usage has also reduced by approximately 2400 litres.
