About us

The AVENUE project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, has been operating since May 2018 automated mini-bus public transport services in 4 different European cities. The project is entering its 4th year, and it has started operating automated mini-buses with on-demand, door-to-door services, demonstrating the full power of automated mini-buses in public transportation. Our first site operating on-demand, door to door services is in Geneva, at the Belle-Idee estate (a 38-hectare hospital site with mixed traffic and with more than 9Kms of covered routes).  The site offers more than 70 virtual bus-stops, operating three automated  mini-buses at almost 100% automated operation (no safety operator intervention),  from trip reservation, to mini-bus dispatching, and even vehicle depot entry and exit.

During the 4th year of the project, in addition to the project other three sites, in Lyon, in Copenhagen, and in Luxembourg, 3 new sites will start operating, in Sion (CH), in Esch-sur-Alezette (LU – European Culture Capital 2022) and in Slagelse (DK), all under different levels of on-demand, door to-door operation, and deploying different sets of passenger and transport services, targeting passenger safety and comfort. The experienced gained will result in sets of recommendations and roadmap towards the adoption of automated mini-buses for public transportation in urban and sub-urban environments.
