UK's first full-size autonomous bus finally due to transport passengers

11 Nov 2022

The CAVForth (Connected and Autonomous Vehicles) project, which described itself as “the world's most ambitious and complex autonomous bus pilot”, told The Scotsman it expected to launch passenger services “within the next three months”.

Four specially adapted single-decker Stagecoach buses will operate between Ferrytoll park and ride just north of the bridge and Edinburgh Park via the M90, M9 and M8.

The public trials over a 14-mile route between Fife and Edinburgh are now more than two years late after being put back several times, including because of the Covid pandemic.
