Mayor’s Challenge Autonomous Shuttle Survey

Lincoln is one of 35 cities selected by Bloomberg Philanthropies as finalists in the 2018 Mayors Challenge, a nationwide competition that encourages city leaders to develop bold, inventive ideas to confront city challenges. The City of Lincoln has partnered with the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center to assess public opinion on the project through a “virtual service journey” survey that allows the public to imagine riding the autonomous shuttle and provide feedback on their experience. If Lincoln’s demonstration is successful and additional funding is received, four to six autonomous shuttles could travel along fixed routes in downtown Lincoln as part of a pilot program as early as 2019. Riders would summon the shuttles using smart phones or kiosks.
