Kia ora, welcome! 

Intelligent Transport Systems NZ (ITSNZ) has established the Young Transport Professionals (YTP) group to support young and early-stage transport professionals in their career and knowledge development as leaders within New Zealand’s transport eco-system. 


The Vision for YTP

YTP is a new and exciting sector group predicated by a vision to diversify the industry and strengthen knowledge and collaboration across those starting out in the industry. 

This vision is promoted through a variety of regular events, including networking and development opportunities. Events are provided for ITSNZ members and their young and developing professionals. Others in the industry who are passionate about the transport sector are also invited to join us. YTP is lead and administered by ITSNZ who appointed two Youth & Diversity Ambassadors to the board in early 2020.
