Orlando, Florida, debuts self-driving shuttle that will whisk passengers around downtown
There is going to be a new way to get around downtown Orlando, Florida, and it’s not going to require any human drivers.
The eight-passenger shuttle service is part of a six-month trial for the central Florida city. Transportation planners hope to use data gathered from the pilot program to guide the city’s future transportation strategy.
“With the expansion of autonomous vehicle shuttles into our neighborhoods, we can converge cutting-edge technology with new mobility solutions to further redefine the way our community moves,” Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said.
