Safe-D Webinar: Automated Shuttles and Buses for All Users
Individuals using wheelchairs and those with limited or no sight face extra safety issues in the use of public transit, as well as personal vehicles, including getting to and from a bus or shuttle stop, getting on and off a vehicle, and being secure while riding in a vehicle. These same issues may be encountered with the use of automated shuttles and buses. This project explored these issues by introducing disabled individuals to an automated shuttle in Arlington, Texas, and a smart intersection in College Station, Texas. It also reviewed related pilots, demonstrations, and research activities. This presentation summarizes the results of this project, including exploring enhancements to vehicles, service operations, the street system, and the built environment to ensure that disabled individuals have equal and safe access to automated shuttles and buses to improve their mobility.
