newsDenver’s a finalist in U.S. tech transportation challenge

Denver will compete against six other U.S. cities for a $50 million grant to fund tech-driven, regional transportation initiatives.

The Beyond Traffic: Smart City Challenge is sponsored in part by the U.S. Department of Transportation in conjunction with the philanthropic arm of Paul Allen-owned, Seattle-based business conglomerate Vulcan Inc., which is chipping in $10 million of the $50 million.
