welcome to YPT Europe
Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) Europe is a new group setup in 2021, dedicated to supporting the professional development, mentoring, and networking opportunities for young transportation professionals across Europe.
We are part of a global network of chapters and young people promoting each other and advancing smarter, safer, and more sustainable transport in multiple industries.
Our goal is to foster a community that provides networking and learning opportunities to our members and friends through activities like tours, social gatherings, and inspiring talks. We aim to make YPT Europe a fun and exciting place to connect with like-minded peers. We welcome everyone from all areas of the transport industry including transport operators, startups, local & national government & academia.
Through field trips, happy hours, and speaker events, we want to create opportunities for professionals to gather on an informal basis, which will, over time, foster a community that provides mentorship and networking opportunities. But most of all, we want to make YPT Europe fun!

- The mobility sector is currently estimated to be $3 trillion in size
- Car manufacturers often unsuccessful attempts to muscle in on mobility
- Potentially superapps will be the way to access mobility in the future
- The importance of policymakers measuring the impact of new mobility policies
- Having a super curious mindset is key to succeeding as a transport professional
- There is a town in Belgium that doesn’t allow cars to overtake bicycles!
