Progressing to autonomy

We firmly believe that shared autonomous transport is set to radically change the way we travel and, on a broader scale, the way we live (through flexible, personalised and accessible services, more stops and more regular services, reduced noise and air pollution…). This represents an excellent opportunity for local authority transport networks due to the fact that shared autonomous mobility services will be rolled out before personal autonomous vehicles.

Our ambition? To apply our understanding of the needs of each region to the gradual and successful integration of these technologies into public transport networks.

User case study: groundbreaking operations

Offering night or off-peak services

How can we enable people to travel at night, when traditional transport networks are not operating, or in off-peak periods, when transport services are reduced? Autonomous vehicles represent a transport option that complements traditional networks, providing solutions when buses, metro systems and trams are not running

will be covered at night-time between Massy and Palaiseau

Providing access to a private site or site with restricted access

What do business parks, ports, airports, hospitals, industrial sites and nuclear power stations all have in common? They are all private sites or sites with restricted access. Consequently, how can we make it easier for workers and visitors to travel to and within these areas, where access is limited and often prohibited for personal vehicles?

Facilitating access to a city centre or tourist attraction

Accessing a city centre, tourist attraction, leisure complex or shopping centre represents a specific problem due to pedestrian areas, the management of arrival flows (by public transport or by car) and the challenge of facilitating access to such sites.

Providing transport to the nearest station or stop

How can we enable the residents of an area to easily get to their closest metro station or tram stop?

How can we make it easier for travellers to reach their final destination? How can we offer families, students and pensioners customised transport to enable them to enjoy themselves, learn and get medical treatment?

The i-Cristal electric autonomous shuttle designed for the shared mobility of tomorrow

01 Transportation Technology by Transdev built into the i-Cristal shuttle to ensure it operates smoothly and safely in urban traffic

02 Different types of sensors provide the vehicle with a 360° vision

03 The shuttle is accessible to passengers with reduced mobility thanks to its low floor and access ramp

passengers have travelled on Transdev shared autonomous transport services since 2005
km have been clocked up by Transdev autonomous vehicles across the globe

International experience

In 2005, we signed our first international agreement to introduce a fleet of autonomous shuttles to Rotterdam’s Rivium business district.

Our presence in 18 countries, across four geographical zones, enables us to implement a tailor-made development plan, managed by a dedicated team, for each autonomous fleet.

The blend of our global vision of mobility and a local anchorage allows us to develop unique solutions that are relevant and tailored to the needs and realities of your regions.
