Smart Columbus will continue as innovation lab following deployment of Smart City Challenge initiatives

With the delivery of the Smart City Challenge grants complete, the city and the Columbus Partnership says Smart Columbus will be sustained as an agile, collaborative innovation lab that benefits the Columbus Region by anticipating and advancing what is new and next at the intersection of technology and community good. Five of the eight grant-funded projects — Pivot, ParkColumbus, smart mobility hubs, the connected vehicle environment and the Smart Columbus Operating System — will be sustained by the city of Columbus past the term of the grant, making new mobility tools available to Columbus travelers as mobility behaviors rebound post-pandemic.
