The Med City Mover is a low-speed, automated, electric, multi-passenger shuttle operating in downtown Rochester, MN. Two, six-person shuttles will drive a circular route to serve Rochester residents, businesses, and visitors while passing by the Mayo Clinic downtown campus, residential neighborhoods and apartments, stores, and hotels.
The self driving buses will have an attendant present at all times. This new technology will bring innovative transportation technology to Rochester to test how it works and help Minnesota Department of Transportation and local governments plan for the future of transportation in Minnesota.
The shuttles will operate for 12 months to gather lessons learned for automated vehicles in all weather conditions and provide opportunities for Minnesotans to test out this new, enhanced transportation experience.
