On 6th December 2016, EasyMile in partnership with First Transit, announced the first autonomous vehicle (AV) passenger shuttle pilot in North America.
The pilot project will see the EZ10 driverless shuttles being operated at the Bishop Ranch Office Park in San Ramon, California. The EZ10s will connect tenants to multiple transit options including bus, bike and car-sharing services, and will run on a fixed-route stopping at designated stops within the office park. The EZ10s will each have a customer service agent onboard for passenger questions and information.
The pilot is scheduled to launch in December.
