Mobile City Equals Smart City

Mobile City Equals Smart CityA mobile city equals a smart city, and we want you to join the conversation. So, save the date for November 16 at 4 p.m. Commute Seattle Executive Director Jonathan Hopkins, will discuss commuting choices at the Capital Crossroads and Discovery SIDs' Annual Meeting. Commute Seattle helps reduce drive-alone rates and creates sound transportation plans. These plans help make a vibrant downtown.

Commute Seattle knows workers live more when they drive less, and they work with lots of people to develop a commute-friendly workplace. Whether setting up employer programs, consulting or education outreach services, Commute Seattle helps business owners and property managers meet goals. Commute Seattle also works with workers to plan trips and commuting options.

A smart commute, which includes transit, carpooling, biking and ridesharing, helps create a dense, exciting downtown. Also, changing attitudes and behaviors will free up time spent driving alone. For instance, a bus rider can enjoy her ride into work while she checks email or texts a friend. Just imagine no more road rage. You won't care if the guy in front of you slams on his brakes because someone else is driving.

As Downtown Columbus explores solutions to our parking crunch, Jonathan will talk about how a transit-friendly business culture helps all commuters coming in and out of Downtown. Yep, it’s all about win-win solutions.

The Westin Hotel, 310 S. High St., will host the meeting and awards. Networking and refreshments begin 4 p.m. The awards presentation begins at 4:30 p.m, and Jonathan’s talk will follow. Plenty of time will remain for questions and answers.

Special thanks to event sponsors: The Westin Hotel, LAZ Parking, Tri-Village Self Storage, Ohio Support Services, Ohio Custodial Management and Barnes & Thornburg LLP.
