No driver, no problem? Driverless shuttles coming to Lake Nona

New shuttles in Orlando’s Lake Nona community will soon take you for a spin around the neighborhood – for free. The twist: No one is behind the wheel.
Lake Nona unveiled the first autonomous vehicles in Florida on Tuesday.
To find one of the new Move Nona shuttles, all you have to do is use an app to request a pickup.

The shuttles run on batteries and are guided by sensors, with a goal of reducing air pollution and congestion. Each shuttle can accommodate eight seated passengers and there’s standing room for a few more.

“We want to be one of the autonomous vehicle central points of all the United States, so this is a really big announcement today,” said Orlando mayor Buddy Dyer.
