Autonomous vehicles promise to be the next revolution in transportion, changing drastically how people move and make use of transportation vehicles. Autonomous vehicle transportion will have an even higher impact and provide more services when used in the frame of public transport services,where they should find their first users in suburban areas, which are less well served by traditional transportation networks.
