From Cambridge to Cape Town, Santiago to Stockholm, more than 25 cities around the world are hosting transport hackathons, with the winners set to meet for a showdown at the upcoming 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), is bringing together computer programmers, designers, developers and more to collaborate on innovative and sustainable solutions to transport problems. Winners from each local hackathon will then compete in the inaugural Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit.
