US Department of Transportation Smart City Challenge – Next Steps
The US DOT pledged up to $40 million to one city to help define what it means to be a “Smart City” and become the first city to fully integrate innovative technologies – self-driving cars, connected vehicles, and smart sensors – into their transportation network. Columbus, Ohio was announced as the winner. What will Columbus’ transportation network look like in 2030? What policy responses have these cities developed in their proposals? Which of these cities will move forward with policies and programs despite not being picked?
