The MaaS of the Month is back. In March we focus on 2getthere – an automated first mile last mile connector by MaaS Alliance member ZF. The Rivium ParkShuttle, operating in the city of Capelle aan den lJssel in the Netherlands, is the world’s first autonomous transport system. Operational since 1999, the third generation features an extended route providing both a connection from the metro and the waterbus network to business park Rivium. The autonomous vehicles are the unique link between the networks. The existing route of the autonomous vehicles features a dedicated lane intersecting several major highways, with the extension introducing mixed traffic in the business park. The vehicles will remain steward-less and be the first to be certified according to the Dutch ‘Experimenteerwet’.
