Peachtree Corners set to roll out lengthy path for driverless shuttles

More than 60,000 cars travel on Peachtree Parkway through the city of Peachtree Corners every day.

So, to ease congestion, city leaders are preparing to roll out a new one-of-a-kind path for autonomous vehicles to transport people around town.

“All the autonomous vehicles are either hybrid or fully electric so if you think about nine to 10 people in a vehicle, that’s nine to 10 people off the roadway. So that’s less emission, less wear and tear and into a more sustainable option,” Peachtree Corners Assistant City Manager Brandon Branham said…

Now, city leaders want to run these environmentally friendly Av’s to and from the city’s Technology Park business district and their town center which is about a seven-mile loop. A similar concept called the Hopper is being tested at Cobb County’s Cumberland district near the Galleria Centre and Truist Park. It’s slowly but surely becoming another mode of transportation.”
