Concept

Program Framework

Transfer proven automated shuttle technology to full size buses while creating a market for vendors to cost-effectively produce automated buses through a joint procurement of 75 – 100 buses by the Consortium’s member agencies

1

Technology Assessment

AECOM will continue to invest in a technology assessment of automated transit technologies to better assess the industry, market trends, and technology.

2

Automated Bus Deployment Program

AECOM will act as the Program Manager  to define, procure, deploy and evaluate emerging automated transit technology in PDA and CDA phases.

3

A Consortium of Transit Agencies

Multiple transit agencies would join the program to procure jointly 75-100 automated, full-size, and full-speed buses.

4

Technology Deployment by 2022 in Multiple Pilot Projects

If feasible, the Consortium will deploy the vehicles in a variety of environments and share lessons learned for future technology planning.
