ABOUT US

Youth For Public Transport is an international non-governmental youth organisation (NGO) that promotes the active participation of young people in advocating sustainable mobility, by promoting the integrated use of public transport with other means of transport, to achieve greater well-being and a better quality of life of all people around the world.

Our story started in Helsinki, Finland, in 2006 where a visionary group from the UITP, decided to bring a fresh perspective to the world of Transport, by involving young people and listening to their perspective and experiences on Public Transport.

After the success of Helsinki, the process was replicated in other countries, where more and more young people were getting involved in finding solutions for current social challenges, and to promote better transportation systems that provide a positive mobility experience and accessibility to all citizens.

We are Young Ambassadors spread all over the world, working together because we believe boundaries and limitations should not exist in promoting sustainable development to communities worldwide.

Mission

Developing real opportunities through which young people´s ideas can contribute to a better mobility for everyone.

Vision

Y4PT believes in and promotes a sustainable future, where public transport is completely integrated with other means of transport and provides a positive experience of mobility for all citizens, playing a key role in achieving the environmental, social and economic sustainability of communities around the world.
