An association of transit and transportation agencies has formed the Automated Bus Consortium, a collaboration designed to investigate the feasibility of implementing automated bus projects across the United States. The Consortium is a first-of-its-kind approach to accelerate the development of automated transit technologies and will combine the purchasing power and collaborative decision-making of these founding transit agencies nationwide. If implemented, the pilot projects will use full-sized, full-speed, accessible buses and enable Consortium members to collectively demonstrate and deploy automated technologies in live service environments.
The purpose of the Forum is bring together bus manufacturers, technology companies, and transit agencies to learn about the program for the potential deployment of full-sized, automated, and accessible buses on the proposed Pilot Project Routes for the Consortium agencies.
