USA: Hillsboro’s transportation hubs concept a finalist for $5M prize

Hillsboro announced Monday it is one of 20 finalist cities selected to compete for a $5 million prize with its idea to create transportation hubs throughout the city to better connect commuters with sustainable transportation options.

Hillsboro’s proposal was plucked for the finalist round from some 300 ideas submitted for the Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Mayors Challenge, a competition designed to spur ideas to solve problems with city living.

The competition is run by Michael Bloomberg’s Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayors Challenge.

A team from Hillsboro will attend Bloomberg Ideas Camp, a two-day gathering in New York City, to work with experts on further refining the concept for final submission. Winners will be announced in spring 2013, with a total of $9 million — including the $5 million grand prize — going to five cities to help finance the implementation of their ideas.
