Yellowstone gets ready to start driverless shuttle service

Yellowstone National Park is launching the first program of its kind for the park, thanks to an investment from the Federal Lands Transportation Project.

TEDDY — The Electric Driverless Demonstration in Yellowstone — is a new driverless shuttle service.

The cars are owned by Beep, a company that put its first self-driving vehicle out in Florida in 2019. Currently, they have 17 different driverless shuttles across the U.S. that work on public roads.

They cost around $300,000 each.

“Our team has been here for the last eight weeks on the ground experiencing every season possible,” said chief marketing officer Racquel Asa.

Starting Wednesday, the company will help deploy its shuttles for the first time in a national park.
