Want to see the future of transit in person? This Thursday and Friday, Capital Metro is demonstrating a fully autonomous, electric, 12-person shuttle on the University of Texas campus.

Open to the public on a first-come first-served basis, the demonstration is being facilitated and supported by RATP DEV — a French company and the parent company of McDonald Transit.

The event will take place from 1–5 pm on Thursday, March 16, and 9 am-5 pm Friday, March 17 in parking lot 37 on the University of Texas campus, located at the intersection of Red River St. and Clyde Littlefield Blvd.

This demonstration comes on the heels of the Austin City Council passing a resolution in support of a shared, electric, autonomous mobility future.

Specifically, the resolution “direct[s] the City Manager to develop a plan and prepare the City to take a leadership role in the ensuing ‘New Mobility/Autonomous Vehicle Solution,’ that will shift the City’s transportation system to one that enables shared, electric, and autonomous mobility services.” Read more about the resolution and what comes next.
