Bryan, US is piloting AVs

The university town of Bryan, Texas launched a pilot driverless shuttle route in October 2018. The tests were monitored by Texas A&M’s Engineering Experiment Station together with the support of the same university’s Transportation Institute, who will help evaluate feedback from future shuttle riders. An initial deployment of two vehicles running on scheduled service along a 0.8 mile downtown loop was expected to be expanded as the project continued. Additional research focused on technical aspects of vehicle deployment as well as exploring future mobility options for the city’s public transit system. The project was backed by the Governor’s University Research Initiative and the City of Bryan.
