Ford will expand its competition to crowdsource mobility solutions — now rebranded as the City:One Challenge — to Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood as well as Indianapolis and Austin, TX. The competition, previously known as the City of Tomorrow Challenge, will also reach international cities later this year.
The eight-month challenge invites residents to work on new mobility designs, apps and innovations that make cities more walkable and bike-friendly or enable smart transportation choices. The company is offering a prize of up to $100,000 to fund pilots to test the winning solutions.
Ford will also expand the National Street Service pilot program and rebrand it as the City:One Streets program. That initiative seeks to help citizens engage with cities on reimagining how streets and public spaces are designed.
