Transport Pitchfest

Grant Organiser Transport for NSW
Grant Overview

Transport Pitchfest is a chance for you to tell us your idea that would benefit Transport for NSW customers. The Transport for NSW Open Data Team is always looking for new ideas that challenge the way we commute and interact with public transport, particularly in the innovation and digital space. We work with other teams and government agencies to provide open data that can be used for insight, visualisations and apps. Alongside third-party developers, we endorse and support innovative apps that make public transport smarter and your commute easier. If you think you can do something better or have a product or idea that you think we should know about, we would love to hear from you!

Eligibility Criteria: Registrations of Interest are open to:
(a) individuals; and
