About the EVENT

We have arranged a private morning event with ASCE National President-Elect K.N. Gunalan (Guna) prior to our March luncheon. We will get a presentation on the Smart Columbus initiative, tour the Experience Center, and take a ride on the autonomous shuttle.

As the winner of the U.S. Department of Transportation's (USDOT) first-ever Smart City Challenge, Columbus was awarded $50 million in grant funding and the designation as America's Smart City. We're "becoming smart" by embracing the reinvention of transportation to accelerate human progress. And with it, taking on the coveted job of teaching cities as they evolve similarly around the world.

Columbus received a total of $50 million in the form of two grants: $40 million from the USDOT and $10 million from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. These dollars provide the seed funding for Smart Columbus—a region-wide Smart City initiative co-led by the City of Columbus and the Columbus Partnership.
