What is Autonomous mobility? How can Autonomous mini-busses improve the quality of life in cities? Who can use Autonomous public transportation? This short video explains in simple words how Autonomous vehicles can drastically improve urban public transportation.
Here is the Automated Minibuses experience as if you were there across the different AVENUE demonstration sites In Geneva (operated by TPG), Luxemburg (operated by Sales-Lentz), Copenhagen (operated by Holo) and Lyon (operated by Keolis).

At the end of last year AVENUE recruited ioki to join the project and be the provider of the On Demand Mobility Platform.
The new system had the following goals:
- integration of autonomous shuttles ✅
- into Public Transport ✅
- within a flexible On Demand System ✅
- on public roads ✅
Today the hard work payed of! TPG, Navya and ioki had a joint GoLive in Geneva and it worked! They did a booking, the vehicle picked them up on time, they drove fully autonomous and were dropped of at the desired destination
For ioki – a DB company it is huge milestone, since they now have multiple Self Driving Software Providers (beside Navya also EasyMile) integrated into our platform to serve the different mobility needs. Who wants to be the next?
The AVENUE project intermediate report of Belle-idee is now available on Swiss Federal Roads Office FEDRO website!
Today in the Forum Mobilité in Geneva, Mr. Denis Berdoz, Director General of AVENUE consortium member TPG presented the vision for Geneva Mobility 2030 and the role of Autonomous Vehicles in Public Transport.
