Australia’s first regional trial of an automated passenger vehicle is here.
The Coffs Harbour BusBot Trial is an exciting opportunity to test the possibility for technology to revolutionise the way passenger transport services are designed and delivered in rural and regional communities.
Automated vehicle technology has huge potential to improve the way we live and it’s important we give the community the opportunity to come on the journey as the technology develops.
The trial is a NSW Government initiative, being led in partnership between Transport for NSW, local bus operator Busways, Coffs Harbour City Council and vehicle manufacturer EasyMile.
BusBot operates on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am to 2pm and on Saturdays between 9am and 3pm.
