GoOV enables people with mental disabilities or dementia to travel savely on their own by public transport; no taxi and 25% cost reduction. – Larswww.go-ov.nl
USECASE: JEREMY Jeremy is 14 years of age, and autistic. Every day a taxi comes to pick him up and bring him to school. The trip (7,5 km) lasts 45 minutes because several other kids are being picked-up. Sometimes Jeremy is bullied. When school is out for him at 3 p.m., he sometimes has to wait till the taxi arrives at 4 p.m. GoOV was developed because Jeremy’s parents believed he was able to travel with public transport if he is supported by a smartphone and is monitored / can be supported when he is in need of assistance.
SELF-RELIANT & ON THEIR OWN In the Netherlands > people with a mental disability or cognition problem can’t travel on their own. Budgets for transport are cut. This group will be isolated from public life. Would it be possible to: Let them travel on their own? Reduce the costs for society?
With GoOV +/ people (40%) of the target group would be able to change from taxi to public transport!
