What is Transport4all ? The ‘Transport4All’ Challenge is an initiative of the Smart Cities Mission and Urban Transport wings of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India, that invites NGOs and startups to join hands and develop contextual digital solutions in the urban transport sector.
At the core of the Challenge are citizens who will not only define the problems for which solutions shall be created but also help startups and cities to refine the solutions to meet their needs.
The first edition of the Challenge focuses on digital innovation. Cities and startups will receive guidance to develop and test various solutions, learn from them, and scale them to build people’s trust in public transport and enhance their mobility.
The solutions will make public transport—formal as well as informal— safe, convenient, and affordable for all.
