Driverless shuttle offers glimpse into future of public transportation

MADISON, Wis. (WISC) -- It could be a glimpse into the future of public transportation.

A driverless shuttle made its way around the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison on Tuesday.

The 11-seat vehicle is made by a French company and is linked to research on driverless technology at the School of Engineering.

The shuttle travels at about 15 mph and can respond to the environment around it, stopping for traffic and pedestrians.

"It was a very interesting experience to see the dynamics of how the vehicle responds to the vehicles and the bikers, and as well as how the passengers respond to the actions the vehicle takes," UW freshman Christopher Archuleta said.

If you missed getting a ride Tuesday, you can try the driverless shuttle between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Wednesday. You can get on the shuttle at Russell Laboratories and the Department of Forestry and Entomology Building on Linden Drive.
