Columbus leaders think you should be part of the transit problem solution

Abernathy Miller, Columbus Alive

Transit Columbus and Create Columbus Commission have announced the GOOD IDEAS Columbus program, a think-tank that will bring young professionals and students together with community leaders to creatively solve the city's transit problems.

According to a Jan. 21 press release, Mayor Coleman, Betsey Pandora of The Short North Alliance and Franklin County Commissioner Marilyn Brown are behind the project, hoping it will lead to more active lifestyles, a greener environment and greater accessibility.

If you think you have what it takes and show "the powers that be" how the Columbus creatives get shit done, an application form, program guidelines, and more information are available at or contact Seth Josolowitz at 614-202-9214 or

The selected team members and community leaders will begin work on Feb. 10, and present their ideas at Seventh Son Brewing on April 22.

It's up to us, young Columbus! Let's show those prehistoric bitches how we do things downtown.
