Transit Columbus Wants Your Best Ideas for Columbus Transit
Transit Columbus wants to you reimagine what transportation should look like in our city. The non-profit transit advocacy organization has announced today a new program called GOOD IDEAS that matches up community leaders with teams of students and young professionals to brainstorm and collaborate on creative solutions to solve transit issues in Columbus.
“This is an opportunity for young people to work alongside community leaders in an effort to strengthen the transportation options in our community,” said Eric Davies, Board Chair of Transit Columbus. “The response we’ve received from Central Ohio leadership has been overwhelming.”
Participating leadership includes Franklin County Commissioner Marilyn Brown, City of Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman, Short North Alliance Executive Director Betsy Pandora, Senior VP of Community Impact at United Way and COTA Board Chair Dawn Tyler Lee, Development Director of Cycling for All Brent Simonds, and President of Wagenbrenner Development Mark Wagenbrenner.
Student and young professional participants for GOOD IDEAS are currently being sought by Transit Columbus to participate in the program. Design teams will begin work on February 10th and present their ideas a free public event at Seventh Son on April 22nd at 6pm.
“GOOD IDEAS Columbus is an amazing project that combines the emerging talents of young creative artists, designers, and marketers with the importance of promoting green alternatives for transportation,” said Commissioner Marilyn Brown. “It’s the best of conservation and creativity, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
