What’s your favourite way to get around Lower Hutt? And which journeys do you find the least enjoyable?
As our city grows we want to make sure it’s an easy and seamless place to get around. To help us make future transport decisions, Hutt City Council is doing a survey to collect information on how people currently move around the city to see how things can be improved.
We’re using a cool tool called Maptionnaire which we’ve been working on with the clever team at Opus.
The survey asks about key destinations and places you love to visit, and how your journey could be made easier, safer and more enjoyable. With changes in technology we also want to know if you’re interested in trying new ways of getting around, like electric bikes and scooters.
The survey is anonymous and will take about 15 minutes to complete.
Maptionnaire is part of Council’s Smart Cities work which aims to use technology and innovation to solve modern problems. Council’s Science and Technology Manager Dr Laura Sessions says Council’s role is to lead by example as innovative thinkers, and to inspire, nurture and support innovation in the community.
“We’ll lead some of our own projects like the Maptionnaire survey, and we’re also keen to partner with others who have great ideas. Anyone who has a great idea can send us a proposal through our website.”
