Four U.S. cities selected for Digital Curb Challenge

Four U.S. cities have been selected for the 2020 Digital Curb Challenge, a program launched by curb management company Coord in January. Aspen, Colo., Nashville, Tenn., Omaha, Neb., and West Palm Beach, Fla., will work with the company to establish Smart Zone programs.

According to Coord, these Smart Zone programs will be tailored to each city’s “unique mobility challenges, with the goals of reducing congestion, improving safety and supporting local economic activity.” The company cites growing delivery, ride-hail and shared micromobility activity, along with increased promotion of sustainable transit like buses and bikes and the need for more dedicated space for recreation and commercial activity as factors influencing a change in what is required in municipal curb management.
