A Driverless Bus Transports People In The Сenter Of Neuhausen

Aug 21, 2018 | Entrepreneurship | 0 comments

In March citizens of Neuhausen am Rheinfall faced a self-driving bus at the streets of their city. This autonomous vehicle operates at Route 12 between central Neuhausen and Industrieplatz. Since then it brought already 11,000 passengers to their destinations.

This 11-seats bus was first introduced to public in July 2017. And in early 2018, the partners involved in the project from the beginning set up the Swiss Transit Lab. On the test premises in Neuhausen am Rheinfall, they have committed themselves to developing services and solutions for tomorrow’s (automated) mobility. Overall co-ordination will be in the hands of the global public transport system specialist Trapeze, its affiliated company AMoTech and the public transport authority of Schaffhausen (Verkehrsbetriebe VBSH).

You can catch a driverless bus form 13h00 to 17h00 Monday-Saturday and from 10h00 to 18h00 on Sundays and holidays. The shuttle service operates on a route which connects Industrieplatz with the town centre of Neuhausen am Rheinfall every 10 minutes.
