Autonomous shuttle trial in Gothenburg

January 2021 saw the launch of a new autonomous public transport service in Gothenburg. It concerns a trial involving autonomous electric shuttles, which carry eight passengers along a 1.8km route in the Swedish city.

The service, which is integrated in the public transport network, will serve the Lindholmen Industrial and Science park – a 4km squared former shipyard that now features offices, residential and university buildings and parking lots. The service will operate during office hours from Monday to Friday during a four-and-a-half-month period.
