A new WSP USA study explores what transit agencies and roadway authorities should be considering when implementing cost-effective transit solutions.
In late 2017, the first publicly accessible automated transit pilot was launched in Las Vegas, capable of transporting up to eight passengers. By December 2020, the Federal Transit Administration estimated that dozens of U.S. bus automation tests were under way.
This tremendous growth in the bus automation market is expected to quicken over the coming years. Rapid growth of the automated vehicle market may provide transit agencies with operational, financial, safety and service benefits.
WSP USA is at the forefront of this technology evolution.
