Bombardier YouCity Contest

Bombardier YouCity is an online competition about the evolution of mobility in fast-growing urban areas. "With more than two thirds of the world’s population expected to live in cities by 2050, these commercial and cultural hubs urgently need to evolve in terms of improving the mobility of their populations and driving sustainable economic growth", says Martin Ertl, Chief Innovation Officer for Bombardier Transportation. "Our YouCity contest will provide innovators of the future a unique platform to demonstrate what smart urban mobility will look like on the horizon."

The online competition is open to students and professionals with a vision for the future of urban mobility from developed cities to emerging cities of the future.
