Keolis has launched a free electric autonomous shuttle service at the University of Lille in France which is operating on open public roads for one year.
Two Navya shuttles are running on a 1.4km route in Villeneuve d'Ascq, northern France, which includes four dedicated stops from Monday to Friday. These vehicles will also provide connections to two the Cité Scientifique’ and 4 Cantons Stade Pierre Mauroy metro stations.
This trial was realised through an agreement with the European Metropole of Lille.
Both shuttles are equipped with ramps to make the service accessible for people with reduced mobility.
Last year, Navya's Arma Flinders Express shuttle began operating around South Australia’s Tonsley Innovation District as part of a trial set to include public roads.
