First Transit is partnering with the Minnesota Department of Transportation, EasyMile and 3M to demonstrate shared autonomous vehicle (SAV) capabilities in winter weather.

First Transit is offering rides on the SAV at a local mall in Downtown Minneapolis on January 26, 27, and 28.

First Transit will support the project with onsite personnel, operations and maintenance support for the SAV.

“First Transit is proud to be leading the way in SAV technology and innovation,” said Justin Pate, sr. VP First Transit. “As SAV technology is changing at a quick pace, we are excited to be at the forefront.”

First Transit currently has three operations of the SAV across North America, announcing the first autonomous passenger shuttle pilot in North America, signing an exclusive partnership with GoMentum Station for autonomous vehicle Innovation and Research, and bringing autonomous vehicle passenger shuttles to Dallas sports fans.
