Earlier this year at the ThinkTransit Conference, attendees were lucky enough to experience a demo of an autonomous vehicle. But, it wasn’t just attendees. Paul Comfort, VP, business development, at Trapeze Group, took advantage of the opportunity and sat down with some of the top transit leaders to discuss autonomous vehicles.
One of the industry professionals to participate was Dr. Robert Schneider, executive director at Woodbridge, Va.'s Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission. Their discussion revolves around the potential impact of autonomous vehicles to the cities that adopt them and how the technology is “always going to have a human touch to it.”
