HART to receive up to $1 Million for driverless circulator service

Autonomous vehicleHART has teamed up with the FDOT to make getting around Downtown Tampa easier and safer. Up to $1 million will be available to fund an Autonomous Vehicle Circulator Service between Marion Transit Center to Downtown Tampa along the low speed, controlled access, Marion Street Transitway. This project would be one of the first of its kind in the U.S. using autonomous technology and has the potential to become a genuine problem solver.

With more typical bus service improvements underway, these autonomous vehicles can help solve those tricky first-mile, last-mile challenges to get transit riders even closer to the door of their destination.
