Driverless Shuttles Coming to Grand Rapids In July

May Mobility is expected to launch four autonomous shuttles in downtown Grand Rapids by late July. The startup will roll out the six-seat vehicles on a 3.2-mile downtown bus route in the city. The one-year pilot program was announced in September.

The shuttles are already being tested in anticipation of the formal launch, according to a Facebook post from the city. The shuttles will be staffed with an attendant and run at a top speed of 25 mph, making a dozen stops along the route.
