Smart City Challenge Final Pitch – June 9


Smart City Challenge banner with logo


Last December, Secretary Foxx launched the Smart City Challenge in response to the trends identified in the Beyond Traffic draft report, which revealed that our nation’s aging infrastructure is not equipped to deal with a dramatically growing population in regions throughout the country. 

Join us on Thursday, June 9 at 2:00pm ET as mayors of the seven finalist cities –Austin, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Portland, and San Francisco - make their ‘final pitch’ for why their city should be selected as the winner of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge.  

The winner of the Smart City Challenge will receive up to $40 million from USDOT to help create a fully integrated, first-of-its-kind city that uses data, technology and creativity to shape how people and goods move in the future.

We encourage you to watch the event via livestream, click here to RSVP! Join the conversation using #SmartCityPitch.
