UITP Awards

Our vision is to enhance the quality of life in urban areas worldwide by supporting, promoting and advancing public transport. The UITP Awards have been established to highlight some of the great work being done in our sector in line with achieving this vision.  

UITP Awards 2019

The UITP Awards showcase ambitious and innovative public transport projects undertaken in the last two years in cities and regions around the world. These should position public transport as the backbone of urban and local mobility solutions.

These Awards aim to recognise projects submitted by UITP members. In exceptional circumstances, outstanding applications from non-UITP members may be considered. Please read the Terms & Conditions below for more information about your eligibility.
