In June 2016, the City of Columbus won the U.S. Department of Transportation $40 million Smart City Challenge after competing against 77 cities nationwide to implement a holistic vision for how technology can help all residents to move more easily and to access opportunity. According to Columbus Mayor, Andrew Ginther, the initiative has generated close to $400 million in additional public and private investment.
