Autonomous & Connected Vehicles

CUTA has been exploring the impact of autonomous (AVs) and connected vehicles to understand this emerging trend, and to ensure that their deployment impacts on urban mobility in a positive and sustainable way. For example, if deployed in conjunction with mass and community transit, AVs have the potential to improve mobility and complement transit service, most notably in low-density areas. Alternatively, through a private ownership model, these technologies could add even more cars to the road and worsen congestion. Studying and understanding this exciting new technology will help ensure that Canadian transit systems can adapt more quickly to this changing mobility landscape.
