Smart Cities Sound Off: The Future of Transportation

Although Columbus Ohio was the sole winner of the US DOT's $40-million Smart City Challenge, the competition drew investment to other cities and created a repository of innovative transportation solutions. According to the DOT, "the challenge was built on the premise that the winning city would work with other government officials to help spread smart transportation technology throughout the U.S.” This panel will include representatives from three of the cities involved in the Smart City Challenge to explore how the US DOT’s original vision has been accomplished over the past nine months and what has been learned.
