RTA DUBAI - THE 1ST HONORARY FOUNDING MEMBER OF Y4PT FOUNDATION

The Roads & Transport Authority (RTA)  Dubai has generously agreed to provide core funding for the Y4PT Foundation for 2017-2019. Being a leader in innovation and a strong advocate for sustainable mobility RTA has demonstrated how public transport can change the landscape even in cities where cars used to dominate. The Y4PT Foundation , world’s leading youth organization championing sustainable mobility, was established in 2013 by the Association of Public Transport (UITP) with generous contributions from RTA Dubai. The Y4PT aims to promote the active participation of young people in transport and mobility issues at all levels, and settings, since young people are one of the most significant groups of public transport users and will inherit the outcomes of all key decisions taken today. By supporting Y4PT RTA, Dubai  is ensuring youth has a strong voice and can contribute to finding innovative solutions that best suit todays changing mobility needs. RTA also conducted the first Public Transport Hacakthon in the region on the 27th & 8th of March and will also be sending a youth representative to the Global Hackathon in Montreal, Canada.
