About the Challenge

Transport for NSW launched the Personal Trip Plan API Challenge in December 2016 to discover how the newly introduced Trip Planner APIs could be used to provide real-time information to customers. We asked the developer community to submit concepts and if chosen as a finalist, be able to produce a market-ready product that incorporates the APIs by early 2017.

These three high quality submissions were selected as finalists by Transport for NSW and invited to an incubation program.
