How Do I Get Home Safe at Night?

Supported By: 
City of Melbourne
Eligibility Criteria: 
Any hack that helps people find a safe way home from the Melbourne CBD at night

Melbourne is an active city at night, with venues staying open into the early hours of the morning on weekends, and people choosing to socialise in public spaces and the CBD after dark. Many people may feel unsafe when transiting home after a night out. They may need to utilise publicly available transport options (taxis, Nightrider services, trams, trains, cycling or walking) rather than driving a private vehicle to avoid driving under the influence. The City of Melbourne is interested in giving everyone the best chance of getting home safely. Can you create something that can assist people in finding the 'safest way home' after a night out in the Melbourne CBD?

Melbourne is a sleepless city with more than 800,000 people moving around the city everyday. This number is estimated to increase to a million people by 2030. Walking accounts for 66% of the trips made in the city. Walking trips are also a major contributor to the economy, being the dominant mode for shopping and tourism. City of Melbourne has recently released a draft walking plan proposing ways to improve walking condition in the city as population grows.
