Sohjoa Last Mile

Sohjoa Last Mile demonstrates how to run automated shuttles without a safety operator in Kongsberg (Norway), Gdansk (Poland) and Tallinn (Estonia) in order to test, learn about and document lessons learned. Electric mini busses without an operator/driver can be a game changer for public transport carriers, as the costs for the operator of a vehicle can be up to 60 % of the entire costs. Such automated shuttles could promote change in urban public transportation, in particular by providing a solution for public transport users to drive the last mile, i.e. who need an additional connection between a station and their final destination.
