The Philippine Transit App Challenge culminating night will take place on October 14. The DOTC is giving out a special award for the app that shows most potential in providing new insight through visualization and data collection for transport improvement in the Philippines.
Last July 2nd, the competition was launched and was followed by a 3-month development period, where participants worked together with volunteer mentors to build their entries. more than a 100 app ideas were received and more than half of those have passed to the prototype phase. After a period of online competition, and with the help of the public vote and the judge evaluation, 10 finalists will be selected for the award ceremony.
During the culminating night, to be held on October 14, these finalists will pitch their entries live on stage. The winners will be announced during this same event.
