How to optimise public transport networks with autonomous shuttles – a guideline

The Business Line Mobility (Dornier Consulting) of the Dornier Group has successfully completed the Hub Chain project which has been funded by Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

The Hub Chain team has published a guideline which summarises the practical experiences with the autonomous shuttle “Hubi” as last-mile connection to public transport in suburban and rural areas. The guideline addresses local authorities and public transport companies and provides insights on how to integrate on-demand shuttles into public transport networks as well as on the user acceptance of driverless operation on the Hub Chain website (only available in German).
