Cities Now Exploring Autonomous Buses – But Is It Worth It?

On March 28, the City Council of Arlington, Texas approved a six-month lease of two EZ10 driverless shuttles from the French startup EasyMile, with a six-month option to renew.

The vehicles, which can transport up to a dozen people at a time, will operate on a fixed course between parking lots and venues in Arlington’s entertainment district.

Arlington joins Contra Costa County in California as the second community conducting official tests of EasyMile’s driverless shuttles. A similar project is being undertaken in Boston, Massachusetts with Nutonomy – the same company that launched the world’s first autonomous vehicles for hire in Singapore last year.

However, the three models diverge both in their financing and the policies enabling their implementation.
