Be a part of the autonomous transport future
Victorians are being offered the chance to be among the
first in the State to experience a journey in an autonomous vehicle
in a trial at the Bundoora Campus of La Trobe
The project is partly funded through a $375,000 Victorian
Government Smarter Journeys Programme grant, and is the first
Victorian project to address first and last-mile mobility
requirements to connect to traditional train, tram and bus
Keolis Downer, proud operator of Yarra Trams, is a partner on
the project and brings insights from Keolis' other autonomous
vehicle trials currently underway across the world including France
and the USA.
The trial aims to help shape the State's transport future
through a demand-based mobility solution that is integrated and
compliments existing public transport options.
It will look at all aspects of safety, operations, passenger
experience and technology to deliver a comprehensive analysis to
the Victorian Government and establish a framework to develop more
autonomous vehicle solutions in the future.
Victorians can register their interest to be part of a trial
journey on the autonomous vehicle between 23 April and 15 June
