Technology as a tool and the T's of smart cities
Technology, Transportation, and Tourism are fundamental elements of any smart city, where leaders in public and private sectors use technology as a tool to improve outcomes for people.
Technology solutions enable us to create a foundational layer of connectivity to improve our neighborhoods for businesses and residents. Transportation solutions enable residents to access education, jobs and job training, healthcare and other necessities of life. Tourism drives local economies as new dollars staying in our neighborhoods enhances regional growth.
