Tuesday, April 24, 2018 – Transportation
Presented by Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA)

The transportation sector is on the brink of transformation. As Columbus prepares to welcome an estimated 1 million new residents - including many young professionals and families - and 300,000 new jobs by 2050, where and how we work will have a major impact on the way we get around.
  • "Smart is Just the Start" will feature a roundtable with COTA Chief Information Officer Michael Carroll and City of Columbus Deputy Innovation Officer Brandi Braun of Smart Columbus about how technology is advancing the commuter experience, today and into the future.
  • Share your ideas for enhancing the convenience of transit at "Let's Connect," a collaborative session facilitated by COTA Public Affairs Administrator Doug Arseneault, Transit Columbus Chair Josh Lapp, and City of Columbus Community Services Planner Patrice Allen Brady to explore innovative options for getting from your door to everywhere you want to go.
