WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
- Understand potential transit applications for connected and autonomous-vehicle technologies
- Communicate the value propositions and implementation challenges for the various projects presented
- Recognize pilot project opportunities in your city, using the various examples provided in Atlanta's context as templates
MORE SESSION DETAILS
Cities can leverage connected automated vehicles to improve transit operations and rider experiences through cost reductions, improved safety and more effective service. We look at specific applications of these technologies, using Atlanta as a case study. There is increased public interest in launching and studying these programs, as evidenced by the Federal Transit Administration's recently announced Strategic Transit Automation Research plan. Our proposals include circulator shuttles, public ridesharing, and bus rapid transit, some of which we already see in pilots elsewhere.
