Driverless Shuttle Coming To Gainesville As Part Of The Smart City Initiative

In the past, if students living in Downtown Gainesville wanted to get to class, they would have to drive to campus, ride a scooter, walk more than a mile, or wait for the bus.
However, starting in May, those students will have yet another way to get to the University of Florida campus.
“The Gainesville Autonomous Transit Shuttle, or GAToRS, is the first of its kind in the country, and it is being introduced to Gainesville as part of the city’s initiative to begin Smart City policies,” said Dan Hoffman, the assistant city manager for the city of Gainesville.
