The future of American Mobility in the face of autonomous technology remains unknown. However, private mobility service providers are beginning to explore the proposal of using shared autonomous lanes. What is the role of traditional transit operators and cities to preserve existing or develop new dedicated lanes to accommodate the request? Should public operators be the only parties able to use high capacity lanes? In Austin, community leaders are preparing for high capacity transit in dedicated lanes and working with private mobility providers to augment the high-frequency routes. Are those high capacity lanes the first candidates for autonomous routes? In Reno, Proterra is working with the University of Nevada to pilot an autonomous route for high-capacity transit. Learn about the challenges and opportunities for transit in short-term and long-term planning for an autonomous mobility future.
