What is Denver Smart City?

Denver, Colorado, is a city whose progressive approach to innovation is rooted in its pioneering, Western spirit. Spurred on by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge, Denver is aggressively embracing and testing new and better ways to deploy technology and use data to improve services for residents, businesses, and visitors. 

Guided by grounded principles and defined portfolios, Denver Smart City is knocking down silos between departments, optimizing city operations, and addressing some of our biggest challenges: crime, traffic congestion, vehicle crashes, air pollution, and economic imbalances.
