Automated BusBot begins driverless trials in Coffs Harbour
Residents of Coffs Harbour are set to trial an automated public shuttle bus operated without a supervisor or driver. Australian bus company Busways launched its “BusBot” automated shuttle bus in Coffs Harbour at the beginning of 2019.
The driverless trial will again operate at the North Coast Regional Botanic Garden in Coffs Harbour, marking the first time in the world an automated passenger shuttle bus service has reached driverless operation.
This is the same company that is eager to set up a two-tiered workplace if they win one of the STA contracts. A company that sees employees as nothing but potential profit if they can squeeze them enough, is trying to find a way to get rid of drivers completely- and the NSW LNP Government is fully supportive.
