Trainhack brings designers and developers together to create solutions for sustainable and accessible public transport.


This years challenge focuses on #trainfirst - how do can we help organizations prioritize sustainable travel?
How can technology help companies choose to travel #trainfirst?

People are often choosing to travel with alternatives other than public transportation for work trips - can we figure out a way to make make public transport the first choice?
