El primer servicio de autobuses autónomos del mundo comienza en Escocia

By Ninian Carter

May 15, 2023 - El primer servicio de autobuses públicos estándar sin conductor del mundo ha comenzado en Escocia con una flotilla de cinco vehículos de un solo piso en una ruta de 22 kilómetros de Edimburgo a Fife.

Stagecoach Group has begun a driverless bus service over the Firth of Forth in Scotland, in what the UK government says is the first full-size, self-driving public bus service in the world.

Project CAVForth sees a fleet of five Alexander Dennis E200 single decker buses run a return service from Edinburgh Park in the city’s west to Ferrytoll Park and Ride in Fife, mainly using motorways and travelling at up to 80 kilometres an hour.

The vehicles have two members of staff on board – a safety driver sitting in the driver’s seat to monitor the technology, and manually take-over if necessary, and a “bus captain” who is there to help passengers with boarding, buying tickets and queries.
