Expanding your mobility ecosystem.
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.
3,000 passengers per day transported in our AV operations
Only transit operator to deploy AVs from more than three unique vendors
Delivering Autonomous Alternatives
In hundreds of cities in 19 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 has also partnered with Delphi and Nissan-Renault to deploy AV systems in multiple contexts.
Transdev AV deployments in Florida
Babcock Ranch, Fort Myers, Florida
Transdev is operating the first AV network in the country at Babcock Ranch, a new completely solar-powered 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 residents and visitors an easy way to choose how to get around town on multiple modes.
This fall, Transdev will begin offering students rides to and from school aboard an autonomous vehicle. School shuttle service is part of an overall strategic plan to deliver autonomous technology designed around the needs of Babcock Ranch residents.
Gainesville will become the latest city in Florida to launch Transdev’s AV operations with 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 service. Regular service is expected to begin this summer with a dedicated operator on board to ensure a smooth startup, with eventual plans to have the vehicle 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 was the first operator selected for a six-month 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.

Designing an AV Shuttle for Tomorrow’s Mobility
We have integrated our autonomous driving technology developed with our eco-system of partners into an electric shuttle to create the most informed AV, yet.
i-Cristal meets the specific transportation needs of closed industrial sites, university campuses, business parks and airports. The new vehicle, i-Cristal will be able to drive smoothly in open-road conditions within normal urban traffic with optimum safety and security. It is equipped with a fast-charging system, able to recharge 50% of its battery in 30 minutes and 100% in 90 minutes.
Transdev continues to operate autonomous vehicles from various manufacturers to meet the specific needs of its customers, but the i-Cristal shuttle extends our offer to clients with a new option for AV shuttles. The vehicle will be available by the end of 2018.
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
