Mission and History

Mission and History

YTP has been supporting young people in the transport industry since 2014, and our membership is now approaching 1300. We exist to support the next generation of leaders in transport through a wealth of networking and development opportunities.

We have a diverse membership base, with professionals working across 25 disciplines and within 160 companies.

We host a variety of events, from panel discussions and forums, to site tours, and social and networking events. These events provide members with opportunities to connect and network with other young professionals in transport, as well as learn about new technologies and innovations.


The YTP was established because as a young person new to working in transport, I felt that it was difficult to meet other young people also working in rail and related transport industries. Transport, particularly rail, has an ageing workforce, so I wanted to establish a group that would allow young people to learn about the industry together, and provide them with opportunities to create strong professional networks.
