Odyssey are currently assisting Buckinghamshire Council in assessing the feasibility of operating an autonomous bus service in High Wycombe, in association with EasyMile ( https://lnkd.in/draw4fp ). Our involvement forms part of the Council’s bid for the Government’s Future High Street Fund.
Our work includes reviewing existing bus routes in the town and examining what changes would need to be made to existing carriageway layouts and signalised junctions to accommodate an autonomous service. The next stage will be to liaise with Buckinghamshire Council Highways Officers regarding traffic modelling and any necessary mitigation strategies which might be required in association with implementation of this service.
We look forward to continuing to assist the Council on this innovative scheme.
