Tom presented current trends in urban development together with insights about how and when a different user group uses IT when traveling. Tom used this as a basis to introduce the different personas in Travelhack 2014 Norge. Torbjørn described the history behind Ruter Labs and also revealed that the teams will be able to use a test version of the new public transportation API during the contest that Ruter Labs will launch in May/June.

Bent Flyen from NSB presented current trends in information provision during public transportation and also challenged the teams to utilize a 180 meter long real time information display in their development during the contest.

NSB also announced that each member in the winning team will receive a travel pass to a value of NOK 2500 in addition to the mentorship which is the grand prize of the contest.
