Helping Transit Agencies Assess Opportunities to Improve Access and Equity With Automated Vehicles

Rapid improvements to public transit could occur if agencies elect to integrate shared, automated, electric vehicle technology in the existing public transportation system. This project develops a replicable, open, deployable model which can (1) identify unmet service need based on transit dependence and low income and minority status and (2) conduct a cost analysis on the feasibility of operating shared automated vehicles and shuttles as a part of a public transit system.
