Transport for Greater Manchester is partnering with the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), as part of the EU-funded IMOVE research project to tackle tough urban mobility challenges. Are you a developer, innovator or entrepreneur? An expert in business development, Internet of Things technology, or public transport systems? We need you! Join us for a weekend of innovation and collaboration, working with industry experts to help shape the future of mobility and bring about the social and environmental potential of Mobility as a Service.

With crash courses in running a start-up and workshops with leaders in technology and sustainable transport, your idea could make its way to the 63rd UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm later this year, one of the biggest sustainable transport events in the world! A member of the winning team will have an expenses-paid trip to participate in the Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon taking place during the summit.
