Our top 10 articles for 2021
The iMOVE website is back manned as of today, and in the spirit of the Roman god Janus (from where we get the name of the first month of the year), the god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, etc. not only do we today start to look at what’s ahead in 2022, here we take a look back at 2021. What articles on the iMOVE website attracted the most eyeballs last year? In answer, here’s the year’s top 10 most-read stories, starting with number 10, and ending with 2021’s most-read article.
Coming in at number 10, the author of this piece is Professor David Levinson, of the University of Sydney. This article is adapted from Professor David Levinson’s book The 30-Minute City: Designing for access, and is about those small local decisions that are often overlooked as planners and engineers focus on major infrastructure policies and programs.

Not only another iMOVE project, but a project outcome. Embedded in this article is the video of the webinar we held in which we presented and discussed the results of the MaaS trial in Sydney project, one we did with IAG, The Institute for Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) at the University of Sydney, and SkedGo.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
This is a reasonably recent project, and it has grabbed quite a bit of media attention. Indeed, as recently as late December it featured on Channel 7 news. Given the recent increase in active travel participation during the COVID-19 period and growing cycling infrastructure, this is a timely and important piece of work.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
Also timely, building not only from all the talk emanating from the recent UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, on top of what was a growing area of concern(s) for Australians, is this project. It will assemble a group of Australian scientific experts to support the development of a Low and Zero Emission Transport Strategy for Australia, providing evidence-based guidance to local, state/territory and federal governments on how they can support transport decarbonisation in a timeframe congruent with global climate targets.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
This marks the third appearance for this project article. It appeared in number 1 position in 2020, and was the second most-read article in 2019. So sure, go ahead and read this introductory article about the project, and also scoot on over and read the final report on the project, at Sydney MaaS trial: Design, implementation, lessons, the future. Plus we held a webinar about the project and its findings, that you can watch at Webinar: MaaS – what have we learnt from our 2 year trial?READ THE FULL ARTICLE
The first of two appearances in the Top 10 by this exciting and important project, in which custom-made, state-of-the-art medical drones with a flying range of up to 250km will be developed and trialled for delivery of potentially life-saving medicines in Northern Territory.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
And this drone project’s second appearance in this list. This particular article is an overview of the project, and grabbed a good slice of media attention when the project was announced, from across the world.
We’ve also interviewed Rebecca Ludgate, the Chief Remote Pilot on this project, at Chief Remote Drone Pilot takes health project to new heights.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
These past few years we’ve undertaken a few MaaS projects, and this is our latest. In this project the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and The University of Queensland (UQ) are actively exploring how Mobility as a Service (MaaS) schemes can enhance personal mobility locally, with a particular focus on increasing public and active transport patronage.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
Did I mention that MaaS has been a popular and busy area of interest for us? This is another project outcome article, wrapping up the MaaS trial in Sydney project, running since April 2019, and a includes a copy of the final report on the project.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
