And the milestones keep coming. Las Vegas just made active the country’s first AV public transit shuttle. These type of fixed lines routes (transit lines) are obvious choices as early adopters as the environmental variables are limited. The bus is small – 12 passenger – and the route is short but it is yet another step towards full automation of the transit system.
This type of vehicle is potentially going to be doing the heavy lifting for paratransit and shared trips in the near future. Picture something like this coming to pick you up next time you use uberPOOL or Lyft Line.
