Tampa's HART Hosts AV Demonstration

Autonomous vehicles recently came to the streets of downtown Tampa, FL, in a demonstration hosted by the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART), the city and the vehicle provider.

“The organization’s demonstration with May Mobility is a fantastic opportunity for residents to experience autonomous vehicle technology on our city streets,” said HART Interim Chief Executive Officer Jeff Seward. “Automated vehicles have the potential to significantly enhance our transit system in the near future, and HART is excited to bring this technology and innovative thinking to our community.”

The vehicles transported passengers on city streets and near one of HART’s transit centers to demonstrate the technology in a real-world scenario. The agency anticipates eventual deployment and use of autonomous vehicles in these areas.
