Available in: Category: Safety and Security,Statistics and Data,Transit Operations,Capital Assets Publish Date: 02/01/2020

Transit agencies feel that those vehicles would still need an operator/agent to provide focused customer support and monitor the operating environment. More than 80% of rural and small-urban transit agencies stated that they were not interested in operating fully automated shuttles in the near future.
