The Smart Columbus Ride & Drive Electric Vehicle Road Show
September 28 @ 10:00 am-4:00 pmFree
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 throughout Central Ohio.
Smart Columbus is working to deploy more affordable, reliable and sustainable transportation options to help transform mobility in Central Ohio. The City of Upper Arlington is proud to support this effort by hosting the Smart Columbus Ride & Drive Electric Vehicle Roadshow on September 28, 10 am-4 pm at the Tremont Pool parking lot (2850 Tremont Road).
For efficiency, your test drive may or may not be with up to two other drivers/riders. Drive times are approximately seven-10 minutes long per person, up to a half-hour if three participants are in the vehicle. You must hold a valid driver’s license, be 21 years or older and certify that you have valid auto insurance to drive. Children in car or booster seats are not permitted on the test drive.
