Beep and Moovit are partnering to advance Beep’s autonomous offerings for riders with Moovit’s capabilities that allow passengers to hail an autonomous shuttle within Beep’s autonomous mobility networks. The collaboration will provide customers with an even more predictable, safer, and sustainable form of alternative mobility with the Moovit On-Demand capabilities.
The Moovit app will be available to riders in Lake Nona, a 17-square mile master-planned community and advanced district in the City of Orlando, providing a more efficient mobility journey, including shortened wait times, and greater insight into their AV ride and beyond. Since September 2019, Beep has safely carried more than 50,000 passengers in Lake Nona, the largest and longest-running autonomous shuttle network at one location in the U.S., connecting residential, commercial, retail, recreational, and medical services.
“Lake Nona is a great example of a smart and connected community that is achieving innovative mobility initiatives with the right partners. The combination of Moovit’s consumer interface and on-demand solution, coupled with Beep’s AV fleet, is a powerful one. It has the potential to expand ever more into Lake Nona and other cities in the U.S. to solve first and last-mile challenges,” said Uli Gal-Oz, Moovit VP, business development.
Beep will implement Moovit’s ride-hailing capabilities in additional project areas across the country including Tradition, a master-planned community by Mattamy Homes in Port Saint Lucie, Fla., and additional services areas with multiple routes.
In February 2022, Beep announced a collaboration with BENTELER EV Systems and Mobileye, Moovit’s sister company, to develop and deploy automotive-grade, fully electric, autonomous vehicles in public and private communities across North America in 2024.
