The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Southern Nevada has selected Stantec to lead the implementation of its GoMed Program – the agency’s vision for safer and more efficient travel to, from, and within the Las Vegas Medical District (LVMD).
GoMed – also known as the Automated Circulator and Connected Pedestrian Safety Program – will expand accessibility across the LVMD, a 674-acre cluster of hospitals, clinics, and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Medicine, for patients and staff. Stantec’s services for the project include planning and implementation for the integration of autonomous vehicles (AVs), connected technologies, traffic and data management, and user software interface.
The project is funded by a BUILD Transportation grant from the FTA and will be jointly delivered by the RTC and the City of Las Vegas.
Las Vegas has been on the forefront of new mobility with its Fremont Street pilot, the first driverless shuttle pilot in the U.S., where Stantec staff provided program management, vehicle testing plans, and AV strategies.
