Preparing the City of Toronto for Automated Vehicles

Learn about the City of Toronto's approach to preparing for automated vehicles. Lindsay Wiginton and Shagithya Deivendran from Transportation Services' Policy and Innovation Section will provide a description of Toronto's projects to prepare for this technology, including: the Automated Vehicles Tactical Plan, and the Automated Shuttle Trial – set to deploy in a Toronto neighbourhood in 2020 in partnership with TTC and Metrolinx. Participants will learn about approaches to create internal interest and participation across divisions and agencies; lessons learned from a trial project developed with the goal of exploring the potential for AVs within the transit system; and important areas of consideration for this disruptive technology, including: privacy, accessibility, safety, and more.
