Move2CCAM Rural Autonomous Shuttle Bus Use Case
This Use Case was co-created by citizens and organisations of the Move2CCAM project Satellites. Any information on this post is provided for research and informational purposes only and is not to be relied upon as a real-life implementation whatsoever.
Description: An autonomous shuttle bus service connects poorly connected local towns and villages at set times from specific locations, offering a driverless alternative to traditional public transit, ensuring punctual and consistent transportation. The pick-up time and location must be scheduled beforehand.
Goal: The primary goal connected to the autonomous shuttle bus service, especially designed to link poorly connected local towns and villages, is to bridge the mobility gap by providing punctual, consistent, and reliable transportation without the need for human drivers. By operating at set times from specific locations, this service aims to enhance accessibility and connectivity between these areas, facilitating residents and visitors in moving easily and conveniently across the locales. Furthermore, by utilizing autonomous technology, the service intends to ensure safety, efficiency, and sustainability in transit options, aligning with contemporary smart mobility solutions and potentially contributing to reduced traffic and lower carbon emissions in the served areas.
Co-created by: Citizens and organisations in GZM Municipality, Poland.
Potential business model
- Revenue stream: The service would be owned by a private company (100% of the investment would be private), and will create revenue through its transportation service. Offering individuals multiple possible options for payment.
- Users/customers: All citizens living in rural areas
