Aparna Dial 

Deputy Director City of Columbus Department of Public Service


The City of Columbus "Smart Columbus" vision won the U.S. Department of Transportation $40 million Smart City Challenge in June 2016 after competing against 77 cities nationwide to become the country's first city to fully integrate innovative technologies - self-driving cars, connected vehicles, and smart sensors - into their transportation network.  Columbus was also awarded an additional $10 million grant from Paul G. Allen's Vulcan Inc. to accelerate the transition to an electrified, low-emissions transportation system.

Columbus will become the nation's epicenter for intelligent transportation systems (ITS) research to improve safety, enhance mobility, create ladders of opportunity for those who may have been left behind in the past, and address climate change by reducing emissions.
