Since 2015, RAC has been working to test and evaluate a fully automated, electric shuttle bus and on the 31st August 2016, with the support from the WA State Government and the City of South Perth, we launched our Intellibus® Trial on public roads.
As of May 2019, more than 18,241 people had registered to ride and 12,090 had experienced the Intellibus, with many more stopping to observe and take a photo. The RAC Intellibus® has travelled more than 19,737 km in autonomous mode and completed more than 5,639 thirty minute rides.
The RAC Intellibus® will be in Busselton from 8 May to 30 June 2019, giving locals and visitors the opportunity to take a ride and learn about driverless vehicle technology and its benefits. The South Perth Trial will still be operating throughout this period.
