TPS sponsors an award for the Best Paper by a Young Practitioner at the annual Transport Practitioners' Meeting. This year's winner was Ruby Stringer of Integrated Transport Planning Ltd. for her paper entitled "Quality Incentive Contracts to improve women's safety on public transport in Bangladesh"

TPS considered that Ruby had identified and clearly explained an important problem particularly prevalent in Bangladesh. Drawing on evidence and experience from elsewhere, she developed a series of well considered and practical actions to address the issue, specifically designed for conditions in Chittagong.

She not only put forward a range of sensible ideas, but demonstrated their robustness by critiquing them against possible objections. The paper was extremely well written and she is considered to be a highly capable and competent young transport planner who deserves to be encouraged by TPS. Read her paper here.
