As the sole winner of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) first-ever Smart City Challenge, Columbus was awarded $50 million in funding and the designation as America’s Smart City. In addition, we’re taking on the coveted job of “becoming smart” by embracing the reinvention of transportation to accelerate human progress. And with it, the responsibility to be a teacher for cities as they evolve around the world.

Smart Columbus is managed through a public/private partnership of the City of Columbus and the Columbus Partnership, which are joined by more than 100 public, private and academic sectors in scaling our city’s smart city vision.

For more information, visit or the Smart Columbus Experience Center on the Scioto Mile.
