Besides public transport such as rail, metro, tram and bus networks, collective passenger transport also covers car-sharing, car-pooling and flexible mobility services such as train-taxi schemes and demand-responsive transport in areas of low demand.

Improvements to public transport services may address public transport vehicles and related infrastructure, as well as management techniques.

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.
