Passengers can use the autonomous electric shuttle service to connect with existing bus lines and track shuttle schedules in their travel app or on the city website.
A new autonomous mobility solution is being trialled in the Swedish city of Gothenburg on behalf of local public transport authority Västtrafik.
Multinational transportation company Keolis will operate this new electric shuttle service which will serve industrial and residential sites over a trial period of up to five months.
Autonomous electric shuttles
Two autonomous electric shuttles manufactured by Navya will operate during office hours from Monday to Friday. They will travel on a fixed 1.8km route serving the Lindholmen Industrial and Science park – a 4 km² former shipyard that now features offices, residential and university buildings, and parking lots.
“We are delighted to step up our decade-long collaboration with Västtrafik and offer a new mobility solution to Gothenburg residents and visitors with this innovative, sustainable, flexible mode of transportation,” said Bernard Tabary, CEO International Keolis Group.
Bus passengers can use the service to connect with existing bus lines and track shuttle schedules in their travel app or on the city website. As the legislation requires, a safety operator will be present in the vehicle at all times, Keolis reports.
