Are you a technology or mobility company with a demonstrated, innovative solution that can change how people travel in cities?
If so, apply for the STAMP Delhi Challenge before October 2nd!
The Station Access and Mobility Program (STAMP), led by Delhi Transport Department and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, has partnered with the WRI India Ross Center and Toyota Mobility Foundation to launch the seventh edition of its Challenge in the city in 2022.
If Delhi must meet its clean air targets, emissions need to be addressed by getting more commuters to switch to public transport, by ensuring public transport is easily accessible for all.
But how can we get more people to use public transport? As a mature metro network, Delhi’s vision is to usher in better service quality and integration across its services, from ticketing to last-mile planning, to bring in greater efficiency in operations.
This is what STAMP aims to do in Delhi, by driving multimodal integration and data-driven transport planning across the city. The program enables station accessibility through a partnership model with entrepreneurs and innovators, backed by an emphasis on data and research.
We are looking for two different kinds of solutions:
- A mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) platform that will allow greater information dissemination through a single platform for journey planning and payment integration
- Working to build greater efficiency of existing last-mile connections through aggregating disparate services and improving connectivity with new last-mile modes in low-service areas
Selected enterprises will have a unique opportunity to implement three-month pilots in Delhi to:
- Demonstrate pilots in Delhi that focus on accessibility and better connectivity
- Engage with government agencies and expand networks
- Receive technical and financial support, as well as mentorship
- Explore opportunities and leverage commuter data to develop innovative solutions
If you think you have the right solution, apply here today!
