City of Peoria
Robo Ride provided a busy downtown area with a reliable alternative to personal transportation during peak times enabling residents and visitors to more easily access the retail and restaurant services in the area.
The City of Peoria partnered with Beep for its first autonomous mobility project called ROBO Ride. This program was designed to understand the feasibility of using autonomous vehicles alongside current transportation options as well as assess ridership adoption, behaviors, and patterns.
The autonomous shuttles operated in the P83 Entertainment District in mixed traffic that includes pedestrians and vehicles along Arrowhead Fountain Center Drive from Huntington University to Paradise Lane. The shuttle travels on Arrowhead Fountain Center Drive with four stops in the diverse entertainment area with hotels, restaurants, a spring training sports complex, and a university.
The City of Peoria saw value in autonomous vehicles and the key role they will play in future travel safety, reduction of harmful emissions and choice mobility options. The city is currently evaluating and reviewing ideas for another autonomous vehicle project in the near future.
Closing Statement“We are thrilled to be in partnership with Beep to launch this new project in the city of Peoria. It is an ideal environment to showcase the ways in which driverless vehicles integrate seamlessly in our everyday lives and can serve as a model for other cities in North America,” said Jerome Rigaud, COO of NAVYA Group.
