The winners from a series of hackathons held in 22 cities around the world met for a final two-day hack which concluded yesterday on the eve of the UITP Global Public Transport Summit (15-17 May 2017) in Montréal. The ‘hackathon,’ a new initiative from the UITP (International Association of Public Transport) Foundation Youth For Public Transport (Y4PT), brought together computer programmers, designers, developers and more to collaborate on innovative and sustainable solutions to transport problems. Winners from each local hackathon then met for the inaugural Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon at the UITP Summit. Overall winners were announced at the Opening Ceremony of the UITP Summit and will have chance to meet with operators, authorities, and potential investors over the next three days.
