Boulder Selected for Smart Cities Collaborative on Transportation
The collaborative will hold its first meeting in Denver
The City of Boulder is one of 22 communities selected to participate in the second cohort of Transportation for America's Smart Cities Collaborative program. Over the course of the year, the City of Boulder will join other communities to tackle how emerging technologies and new mobility options are reshaping the use of the right-of-way and curb space, and to ensure people and goods keep moving through Boulder safely and efficiently.
The collaborative’s work will directly support the city’s Transportation Master Plan update.
The City of Boulder was selected from a group of 50 cities that applied to be a part of the collaborative this year. Last year, the inaugural cohort of cities tackled challenges related to automated vehicles, shared mobility and how to use data to manage complex transportation networks.
The collaborative will hold its first meeting in Denver from April 16-17. Throughout the year, representatives from the city will participate in a variety of interactive workshops, both with the other cities and with industry-leading transportation experts. From there, the participants will receive direct technical assistance and share the results of their projects with the rest of the collaborative to drive best practices across the country.
The full list of 22 communities participating in the collaborative in 2018 include:
Los Angeles, CA,
New York, NY
San Diego, CA
San Francisco, CA
San Jose, CA
Santa Monica, CA
West Sacramento, CA
