 New Flyer, in partnership with the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT), Robotic Research, and Center for Transportation and Environment, will deploy North America's first automated transit bus. New Flyer's SAE Level 4 automated, zero-emission transit buses will support CTDOT's pursuit of integrated mobility through its demonstration project to: 
  • Demonstrate Level 4 autonomy developed on Xcelsior CHARGE™ battery-electric buses;
  • Use automated bus docking at CTfastrak stations to increase accessibility; and
  • Illustrate platooning capabilities to maintain more efficient headways between buses.
The project marks continued advancement of automated technology in public transit. New Flyer is proud to lead the industry in developing of safe, smart, and sustainable mobility solutions.
