We are operating in Gothenburg – welcome to ride!
A self-driving minibus with space for 14 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. The project is part of the government’s co-operative program “The next generation’s travel and transport” and is mainly financed by Vinnova through Drive Sweden. The project is led by the research institute, RISE.
This Friday, 1st of June at 14.00 we conclude these first trials. We will continue after summer at Lindholmen and Chalmers Johanneberg. Dates will be announced here.
It takes a coalition to make this possible: Autonomous Mobility, 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.
The project is a part of the Swedish Government’s innovation partnership program, “The next generation’s travel and transport,” and is funded in part by Vinnova through Drive Sweden. The project is lead by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
