Dave Pickburn #StreamTeam update | 12 July 2019 | Electric vehicles & Milk runs
Hello! Its Dave Pickburn
I’ve been on holiday for the last week or so, it’s good to be back.
I did a trip from Leeds to London to Cornwall and back again, all on electric.
While we were in London, it was interesting to see the effect the ULEV zone was having & the number of electric taxis that were there, and also hybrids, particularly used by the minicab fleet so good to see that going on.
and then we went on to Cornwall and there were some interesting vehicles in Cornwall – I’m not quite sure how roadworthy some of those will prove to be.
While I’ve been away, we’ve been doing a lot of work on fixed routes, being able to build fixed routes and then being able to add stops to those fixed routes either at locations you’re already going to, or places nearby. Essentially what you might think of as Milk Runs, and just making that really easy & quick to do. We see that as being a really good addition to Stream, and that’s going to be going into beta in the next couple of weeks or so.
So, its good to be back at work. My batteries are recharged, my car’s batteries are recharged, my phone’s batteries are recharged. Everyone’s ready to go and looking forward to getting stuck back into things this week.
