Webinar Considers Impact of Automated Vehicles

The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) is sponsoring a free 90-minute webinar on the implications to public transit of introducing automated vehicles (AV) and connected vehicles (CV), Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. Eastern time.

The webinar, using research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program’s Document 239: Impacts of Laws and Regulations on CV and AV Technology Introduction in Transit Operations, will consider potential barriers imposed by operating policies, agency regulations and laws related to the transit environment. Without adjustment, the combination of new technology with old rules could result in delays and restrictions to deployment.

The report presents a road map of activities that industry groups, legislatures, the federal government and others could undertake to facilitate automated operations.
