Smart Columbus Ride & Drive Makes First Ohio State Stop June 7

Come out to the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) on June 7 from 9 – 4 p.m. to take part in the first Smart Columbus Ride & Drive Roadshow held at Ohio State. Test drive one of the newest electric vehicles on the market and learn more about the multi-modal transit options central Ohio has to offer. Learn more and reserve your time to test drive an electric vehicle at go.osu.edu/carrideanddrive.

Additionally, the Smart Campus student organization, CAR, the Risk Institute, TTM and other Ohio State centers and departments will be showcasing their work around Smart Cities and the many mobility options available at Ohio State.

Smart Columbus is working to deploy more affordable, reliable and sustainable transportation options in Central Ohio, and OSU is joining them as a key partner by encouraging all of our employees to drive electric and drive less.

As the winner of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) first-ever Smart City Challenge, Columbus was awarded $50 million in grant funding and the designation as America’s Smart City. The initiative seeks to transform mobility in central Ohio, and change what it’s like to live in our community. Ohio State is the primary research partner of Smart Columbus.
