Trials with self-driving shuttle buses in Gothenburg!

The project S3 – Shared Shuttle Services is testing self-driving minibuses in the Gothenburg area. Phase 1 has finished but the buses will still be visible at the Lindholms area ahead of the new start in 2020.

Download the app Letsholo to locate the shuttles in real-time.

A self-driving minibus with space for 10 passengers is being tested in Gothenburg. Shuttle buses reduce the need for parking spaces, which will stimulate the densification of the city. The goal is to test how new, shared transport solutions can contribute to continued sustainable city development.

It takes a coalition to make this possible: Holo, RISE Viktoria, Chalmers, Chalmers Fastigheter, Ericsson, Förvaltnings AB Framtiden, Härryda Municipality, Karlastaden Utveckling AB, Göteborgs Stads Parkering, Sunfleet, Göteborgs Stad Stadsbyggnadskontoret, Göteborgs Stad Trafikkontoret, Volvo Cars, Västtrafik and Älvstranden Utveckling AB.
