AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah announced its partnership with GoMentum Station and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority on an exclusive agreement to study and test how autonomous vehicles can be safely implemented for public use. This marks another key step in the auto club’s larger plan to help its Members make the transition to new forms of transportation that can be safer, more convenient and improve lives.
The Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) operates GoMentum Station, the nation’s largest secure proving grounds for connected and autonomous technology. “With our multi-faceted approach to redefining mobility, we believe that informing and educating the public about the advances in technology is just as important as the connected and automated technology itself”, stated CCTA Executive Director Randy Iwasaki. “We believe that AAA is the best partner to introduce the public to the possibilities that come with this new technology and be a resource as autonomous vehicles begin to change the way we travel.”
