A number of autonomous bus trials have rolled into action over the last year or so, but a new one kicking off in the US this week is a little different, and not just because it involves an electric bus capable of clocking 600 miles (966 km) on a single charge. US company Proterra has gotten the Nevada authorities onboard for trials designed specifically to explore autonomous mass-transit systems, placing its long-range electric buses on the streets of Reno.
Electric, autonomous buses are taking to the streets in locations all over the world, as companies and governments eye a future of clean, automated mass transportation. Switzerland’s public bus operator is testing them on the streets of Sion, while other examples include the EZ10 in California and the Navia currently shuttling students around a Singaporean university.
