Driverless Shuttle Demonstrated at New Orleans Convention Center

February 11, 2017

Transdev, the public transit management company that manages operations for the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) in New Orleans, demonstrated its self-driving shuttle, the EZ10, at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu gave remarks, along with representatives from the RTA, Easy Mile and Transdev.

The EZ10 is a driverless and electric shuttle that can transport up to 12 people. The shuttle has no steering wheel and neither a dedicated front nor back. The EZ10 operates autonomously following a virtual line mapped and loaded in the software of the vehicle.

The vehicle is on a nationwide tour to show community leaders and citizens across the United States what an automated transit ride would look and feel like.

Members of the public were also invited to ride the vehicle, which was programmed to travel down Convention Center Blvd. from Julia Street down to John Churchill Chase Street.
