August news


Hi Friend,

In August we are excited to be launching the new and improved Co-Hop carpool platform for employees in the park to connect with each other on-demand - Connect members can also earn rewards and be guaranteed a ride home. Co-Hop - the right ride right now!

With springtime fast approaching its time to mix things up a little! Have you tried Keoride yet? It's the on-demand bus service that is ready when you are - it takes you to and from work in a snap! 

On another note - we had a lot of fun last Thursday at the bi-annual Connect Special Event where the Connect Mobility Innovation Awards celebrated member achievements - read the article below for more details.

Connect Special Event II

A big thank you to all attendees for their contributions which made Connect's Special Event II on the 2nd of August a successful gathering of business, institutions and government representatives. 

Overall the night was buzzing with conversations between guests discussing the bright future ahead in the transport industry and trends which will foster business efficiency.

Co-Hop on-demand

Efficient and flexible ride sharing makes everyone’s day better, so we’ve improved our Co-Hop app to make carpooling in Macquarie Park and North Ryde easier, more flexible and more rewarding.

The more you use it, the bigger the rewards - it’s the carpooling app that really brings home the bacon - so spread the word.

We are currently testing the app with our members so stay tuned for more details!
