Finalists for TWO awards!

We're delighted and very excited to be shortlisted for not one but TWO gongs in this year's Smarter Travel Awards, announced tonight:

Best Behaviour Change Campaign Award

Our partnership with the Italian city of Bologna is up for this award, which is sponsored by Merseytravel.

The Bella Mossa programme has run twice so far: the first was in 2017 and the second has just finished. In 2017, 15,000 people recorded more than a million sustainable transport journeys, totalling 3.7 million kilometres– almost 100 times around the globe. It’s calculated those journeys may have saved as much as 750 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Surveys suggested a genuine decrease in solo car use: reportedly, 80 percent of journeys replaced a car trip.

Best Smarter Travel Innovation Award

Our mobile app itself is up for this award sponsored by Mott MacDonald. Our app is part of our Behaviour Change Management System, which combines with proprietary behavioural change and incentive management approaches to deliver evidenced, data-led, locally branded, incentivised behavioural change programmes.

We're up against stiff competition though, such as DriverNet, Transport for London, Cycling UK and Liftshare. Wish us luck!
