Autonomous Vehicles – The Adolescence Years Join us for Autonomous Vehicles the Adolescence Years

Autonomous vehicles (AV) are beginning to revolutionize mobility across the country not just in private transportation but in public transportation as well. Transit agencies in Florida are in the process of testing AV technology on their buses and are working with providers on trial projects. This session will focus on three such trial projects – the LYNX LYMMO Bus Rapid Transit, the University of Central Florida Campus AV Circulator, and the Gainesville Autonomous Transit Shuttle. The presentations and the follow-up discussion will focus on what transit agencies in Florida are doing to get prepared for the AV revolution, what regional and state transportation agencies are doing to support these measures, and how these projects fit into the region’s transportation goals. Join us to hear the following experts share information about their projects:

  • Tomika Monterville, Director of Planning and Development at the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX)
  • Jeremy Dilmore, P.E., FDOT District 5 TSM&O Engineer-Freeways
  • Jesus Gomez, Transit Director, City of Gainesville

You will learn about:

  • How autonomous technology is impacting transit systems planning
  • What the region is doing to get prepared for widespread AV implementation such as infrastructure, workforce, economic development, etc.,
  • Where AV transit technology is going and how to tie it back to roadway investments and demand on the roadway network

Meet and Greet—11:30 AM • Presentations—12:00 Noon
