The purpose of this research will be to provide a greater understanding of the relative advantages and disadvantages of integrating autonomous shuttles within existing public transport solutions. The objective of this research will be to build an evidence base to support future autonomous shuttle stakeholder discussions and decision making. The evidence base will include the following aspects:
1. understanding the conditions under which autonomous shuttles could be a viable alternative to traditional public transport in New Zealand.
2. operational factors that should be considered when evaluating autonomous shuttle vehicle proposals as well as understand how these vary across New Zealand.
3. a framework for evaluating potential autonomous vehicle shuttle proposals using a comparative analysis of two New Zealand locations (Queenstown, Wellington).
Questions asked between 23 December 2020 and 8 January 2021 will be answered as soon as possible from Monday 11 January 2021.
