UITP Awards

Recognising efforts to enhance life in urban areas worldwide

The UITP Awards 2023 submissions process is now live – submit your projects before 13 February

UITP Awards 2023

As the coveted prize in public transport, the UITP Awards showcase the most ambitious and innovative projects of the last two years in cities and regions around the globe. First launched in 2011, this will be the seventh edition of the Awards.

Projects vying for an award should position public transport as the backbone of urban and local mobility. They should excel at enhancing quality of life in urban areas worldwide by supporting, promoting and advancing public transport.

The UITP Awards cover 9 categories, that encompasses the full spectrum of our diverse sector. UITP assembles an impartial expert jury that scores the submitted projects based on their innovation, contribution to the sector, and prospects of transferability to other cities.

The winners for this edition will be announced in a ceremony during the UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Barcelona, which will be held from 4 to 7 June 2023. Representatives of companies who are nominated as finalists must be able to attend the event. To bring more prominence to the exceptional projects, finalists will be invited to participate in ‘poster sessions.’ This is an opportunity to present your project to a wide relevant audience during the Summit.

Submissions open on 9 December 2022 and will close on 13 February 2023. Find out how to submit your projects in the guidelines and read our FAQs for more information.
