The driverless shuttle service officially launched after a ribbon-cutting ceremony showcased the units to the public. Located near the airport, the service is designed for local commuters passing through busy transit areas. It's important to highlight this is the first on-road, self-driving shuttle deployed in Colorado.

61AV Autonomous Route

Called 61AV, the pre-programmed route allocated to the self-driving shuttles runs from 61st & Peña commuter rail station to the Panasonic and EasyMile offices, as well as to the 61st & Peña Park-n-Ride lot. The four-stop trip takes roughly 15 minutes to complete. At the end of the route, the vehicles must loop back, resulting in a continuous service that is suitable for supporting peak commuting hours.

"RTD is pleased to participate in this groundbreaking partnership to explore how innovations in mobility are creating new and expanded opportunities for public transportation," said Dave Genova, CEO and General Manager of RTD.
