CEOs in Autonomous Vehicles with KCATA's Makinen

Posted on October 9, 2018

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 of 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 most innovative CEOs in America and CEO of Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA), Robbie Makinen, joined Paul Comfort to discuss the need to interweave new technology into public transportation. He also shared an idea of how KCATA might adopt autonomous vehicles into their service.
