Green light for the launch of
automated vehicles providing
on-demand service at the Belle-Idée site

We are thrilled to announce that Avenue Project has reached a great milestone!

On June 3, 2020, our partner TPG Public Transport of Geneva received formal authorization from the Secretary-General of the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC) of Geneva to operate autonomous shuttles on the Belle-Idée hospital site.

Initially, two NAVYA Group Autonom shuttles will be put into service on the Belle-Idée site.

TPG expects to manage to engage the shuttles on the whole road network within Belle-Idée by end of August, by piloting a new type of #ondemandservice without imposing fixed routes and stops.
