Designing the Future of Transit Work

This project examines how transit work will transform as autonomous vehicle (AV) technology is applied to the complex operating environment of public transit. We will conduct interviews and diary studies with transit workers to document current functions they perform beyond driving. We will then facilitate a series of participatory workshops to explore the future of transit work and develop a strategic roadmap on transit operations with AVs, with both design proposals and policy recommendations.
