The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is hosting the 2nd edition of the Youth For Public Transport (Y4PT) Foundation’s ‘Transport Hackathon’ for University and College students, which was launched on Tuesday (13-15 March 2018) in the main building of the Authority. RTA is the 1st honorary founding member of the Y4PT foundation.
The competition is supported by the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) as an initiative to develop strategies of high value, to motivate people from different segments of society to leave their own vehicles and to promote the use of mass transport. The winning team of 70 students from 12 universities will qualify for the World Hackathon, which will take place from 23rd to 25th April 2018, on the sidelines of the UITP MENA Transport Congress and Exhibition.
