Leader in Operating Shared
Autonomous Mobility Services
Autonomous vehicles are the cornerstone of a rapidly changing mobility landscape.
Transdev is at the forefront of autonomous vehicle (AV) technology, capitalizing on decades of management and operational expertise. Already we are developing and deploying AV solutions to help solve mobility challenges for cities, towns and communities in North America and around the world.
Our goal is to help you launch autonomous operations that blend seamlessly with existing mobility options, expand connections within your community or enhance the footprint of public transit.
Thanks to our global positioning and expertise with a wide range of AV manufacturers, including EasyMile, Navya, 2GetThere and Lohr, we deliver transport services using autonomous vehicles from any brand.
3.5 million passengers transported annually in our AV operations
1 million miles travelled annually by our Transdev shared transport services using autonomous vehicles—with no steering wheel or pedals
Delivering Autonomous Alternatives
In hundreds of cities across 20 countries, we have helped clients expand their mobility ecosystems through more than a dozen modes of transit. Now, that continues into a new era of mobility with autonomous vehicles.
Transdev AV deployments in Florida
Babcock Ranch, Fort Myers, Florida
Transdev is operating the first commercial AV network in the US at Babcock Ranch enabling residents to travel throughout the new solar-powered eco-town in Southwest Florida. Transdev and Kitson & Partners, the town’s developers, share a vision for the future of mobility that will be shared, sustainable and autonomous. The long-term goal is to deliver Mobility as a Service (subscription mobility) solutions that will give their expected 50,000 residents and visitors an easy way to choose how to get around town on multiple modes.
RNAL is the first on-demand transport service using autonomous vehicles on the open road in Europe operating in three different 7-mile loops. This three-year project offers shared autonomous transport services to urban areas, so that passengers can reach their destination in the Madrillet Tech Cluster or get to the train station from the Cluster during the day.
Transdev’s AV operations in Gainesville, FL offer a new route connecting passengers from the University of Florida to Downtown Gainesville. The new service will serve as a public transit supplement to existing fixed-route, traditional bus service. Service is provided with a dedicated safety attendant on board to ensure a smooth startup, but will eventually operate with full autonomy.

Jacksonville Transit Authority is a national leader in public transit, winning the Public Transit Agency of the Year award in 2016. Part of Jacksonville’s innovative vision for the future includes transforming the city’s existing monorail infrastructure into dedicated “freeways” for autonomous, shared rides. Transdev is the operator selected for a pilot that will examine the feasibility of using the 12-person EasyMile shuttle for future service.

Transdev: A global partner for autonomous mobility
Transdev’s success in North America is modeled after our success abroad.
In Civaux, France, since spring of 2016, Transdev has operated a fleet of six autonomous shuttles on an EDF corporate campus.
In Saclay, in the greater Paris area, during spring of 2018, Transdev will begin to operate an on-demand shuttle service from a major rail station to a business park. The project will also use Renault-Nissan vehicles.
Transdev, our client Metropole Rouen in Normandy, Renault-Nissan and other partners announced the Rouen Normandy Autonomous Lab in October 2017. The partnership will launch a fleet of on-demand autonomous vehicles running on normal public roads in spring 2018.

The Transdev Autonomous Transport System
We are developing a Transdev technology system (supervision, embedded intelligence, connected infrastructure, customer application) that will guarantee safe operations, secure service, and a good customer experience. To do so, we work with carefully selected partners chosen for the quality of their work and renowned expertise.
Autonomous vehicles fleet tracking and management, allocating as needed and maintaining constant contact
Passenger information and assistance before, during, and after their journey
Collects and transmits data about the surroundings
Scan and analyze surroundings in real time so autonomous vehicles can travel in absolute safety; ensure the system run safely
Autonomous Shuttles Open New Possibilities
Self-driving shuttles are a powerful tool to fill gaps in coverage or expand your existing mobility offerings. AV shuttles are currently suited for trips less than 4 miles and can be available on-demand 24 hours a day.
Getting you there, keeping you moving
AV shuttles can move people around campuses, within communities and airports, and through convention and shopping centers.
Shrinking the first- and last-mile
AVs are ideal solutions for connecting people from homes and business to public transit hubs, thus expanding transit’s reach.
A flexible, reconfigurable mobility solution
AV shuttle routes can be dynamically configured, allowing clients to get the most out of their vehicle assets.
Transdev has helped clients design and implement solutions for a variety of use-cases
- Planned communities
- Riverfront areas and downtown circulators
- Airport terminals and parking connections
- Corporate and university campuses
- Office parks and shopping centers
