The most innovative, ambitious and solution-driven projects from our sector from around the world

The UITP Awards are open to submissions. The coveted prize in public and sustainable urban transport is looking for the most innovative, ambitious and solution-driven projects from our sector. Projects can be submitted until 11 October 2021 and the awards ceremony will take place at the MENA Transport Congress and Exhibition in Dubai, which will take place from 6 to 8 February 2022. The exact date of the UITP Awards will be announced soon.

After being established in 2011, this marks the 6th edition of the UITP Awards, which attract hundreds of applications from around the world. These UITP Awards will showcase projects undertaken from June 2019 to May 2021, a period marked by the COVID-19 pandemic. Both projects related to this crisis, and those completely unrelated can vie for the Awards.

The UITP Awards are looking for projects that stimulate public transport as the backbone of urban and local mobility. They excel at enhancing quality of life in urban areas worldwide by supporting, promoting and advancing public transport.

Join the competition and submit your projects latest by 11 October!
