Canadian city mulling introduction of driver-less shuttle services

Calgary, Dec 1 (IBNS): The Canadian city of Calgary has been trying to introduce a driver-less shuttle that would operate between Zoo LRT Station and Telus Spark Science Museum, according to media reports. The driver-less shuttle operation is expected to begin in 2018, media reported.

According to Transportation Strategy Manager of the City, Chris Blaschuk, the ultimate goal of this project is to expand it in other parts of the city too.

"Areas like the university and the hospitals, that part of town, we've been looking for different transit solutions for that area for some time," he said.

"This, depending on what we learn from the trial, would influence what we decide to do in that area," he added.

The technological options in transportation are being studied by the city to see which one would be best suited for the city's transportation needs.

Blaschuk further said that city wanted to be proactive to be ready for changes, rather than reactive.
