UK accelerating transport tech drive with driverless hub and Wayra startup accelerator

A new startup accelerator has been launched to help innovative firms developing transport technology.

The new programme from Wayra, the startup incubator of mobile giant Telefonica, and the Transport Systems Catapult, the government's transport innovation centre in Milton Keynes, is seeking startups from across the "intelligent mobility" sector tackling issues such as congestion and overcrowding, emissions and safety.

Network Rail and tech consultancy ThoughWorks will also be involved in mentoring the startups over the six month scheme.
