The inaugral TRANStech awards will take place on 1st November, celebrating technology that makes transport cleaner, smarter and easier to use.
Entries are now open for all organisations, projects and innovations, with the ceremony, taking place at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel. The awards are organised by Landor LINKS, a leading specialist transport publishing and intelligence organisation, who has brought together a team of experts from various sectors to deliver the project.
The TRANStech awards aim to reward companies across the transport technology sector, from bike-share operators to transport authorities to data platforms, who are making a successful shift to meet people’s needs, environmental goals and positive social outcomes. Fundamentally, the awards are for anyone using technoogy to improve the transport experience.
Awards Director, Darryl Murdoch, said: “In creating these awards, we want to raise awareness and celebrate the people and organisations that are committed to bringing about change for the better in the way we travel across the UK and beyond.”
Landor LINKS is also looking for providers and platforms that enable new business models, such as mobility on subscription and last-mile solutions.
The organisers will ask these questions when considering entrants: Does this technology help improve air quality? Or enable people to get access or use electric vehicles more easily, cheaply or efficiently?
They also want to hear from fleet organisers, whether made up of bikes, buses or other vehicles, who think their customers’ experience and use of their fleet is enhanced by technology.
Lastly, the TRANStech awards are also about system changes. The organisers are looking for areas, rural and urban, that are shifting the way they do things to enable people to travel efficiently, cheaply and sustainably by using technology.
The awards are judged by an independent panel of industry specialists selected from across the mobility solutions represented by the 20 categories.
The winners will be announced at a lunchtime ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on 1 November 2019.
