Passengers give positive feedback to driverless experience

97% of people who rode a driverless pod in Cambridge have told a survey they’d get on one again without hesitation.

More than 300 passengers hopped on board the Aurrigo shuttles to take fully autonomous journeys around the University of Cambridge’s West of Cambridge site this summer – including transport minister Rachel Maclean MP.

The self-driving shuttles were operating from Madingley Park & Ride throughout June to investigate the possibility of autonomous vehicles being used as part of a public transport service in the future.

Surveys were sent to all passengers who had booked a ride online to understand how they felt about their trip in the vehicle and how they might feel about an autonomous service in the future.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership, which led the project, says the findings of these trials will support research into potential driverless shuttle services, to link the city’s other research campuses with the rail stations and Park & Ride sites and help shape the future of mobility in Greater Cambridge and beyond.
