Wheels Shared Autonomous Vehicle Project
The Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA) has completed testing of its state-of-the-art Shared Autonomous Vehicle (SAV). The goal of the project is for the SAV to provide first- and last-mile access for passengers between transit centers, such as BART stations, and nearby locations. Following a comprehensive testing process, the vehicle was certified for use on public streets by the National Highway Safety Transportation Safety Administration (NHSTA). LAVTA is now inviting the public to take a ride on the SAV. The all-electric vehicle operates in mixed traffic, and the route includes two stops and one traffic light. The ride, offered Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., takes approximately 10 minutes. A safety attendant is on board the vehicle at all times. Those interested in reserving a ride on the SAV can contact LAVTA at www.wheelsbus.com/SAV.
