We are pleased to announce Victorian-based startup Joinwheels as a joint winner of the Resilient Melbourne Citymart Challenge.
Joinwheels is a peer-to-peer e-hailing app that encourages like-minded passengers—colleagues, fellow workers or friends— with similar routes or destinations to find and connect with co-travellers.
