As part of a competition called the Smart City Challenge, the U.S. Department of Transportation picked out seven finalists with the clearest plans for a fully integrated city that reshapes transportation systems.

Last week, the department announced that Columbus, Ohio, was selected as the winner of the competition. In addition to the $90 million that the city already has raised from private partners, Columbus will receive up to $40 million from the Department of Transportation and up to $10 million from business project company Vulcan Inc.

Each of the seven finalists put forth innovative ideas for showing the world what a fully integrated, forward-looking transportation network looks like. Following are the seven finalists in the Smart City challenge.
