North Carolina Department of Transportation
NCDOT and Beep are working in partnership to explore applicable use cases for shared, electric, and autonomous shuttles for communities in North Carolina. The partnership will enable NCDOT to expand its understanding of autonomous technology with the CASSI program and further Beep’s safe testing of autonomous shuttles in real-world environments.
NCDOT and Beep will test autonomous shuttle technology in two project locations in the state. These projects will enhance NCDOT’s understanding of shared autonomous mobility in practice and evolve the CASSI program as technology continues to advance.
Town of Cary - Bond Park
The first pilot project will operate in Cary, North Carolina's Fred G. Bond Metro Park, one of the largest municipal parks in Wake County. The four-stop, two-mile route provides an innovative and environmentally friendly mobility solution for residents and visitors to easily access the 310-acre park at their leisure.
In each of the project locations, Beep leverages its experience in safely testing and monitoring autonomous mobility networks while gathering operational data and insights for the CASSI program.
Closing Statement"The future of transportation includes shared mobility options that are as convenient, reliable, affordable, clean and as safe as driving, and allow every person equal access to opportunities and services," said NCDOT Secretary Eric Boyette. "The CASSI shuttle helps make this vision a reality."
Next Case Study
Move Nona has created the largest and longest autonomous vehicle network at one location in the country with five routes and eight shuttles connecting nearly 10 key destinations within the community.
