Description

Join the TransForm Lab for the unveiling of the report Automated Vehicles in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, Results from a 2016 Consumer Survey.

Cars are becoming more automated over time and already include lane-assist technologies and cruise control. These changes may lead to fully-autonomous vehicles (AVs) which require no human control over safety critical functions.

  • With no need for a human driver, how will transportation system users respond and what are the implications for policy?
  • Are consumers likely to purchase privately-owned AVs to replace conventional vehicles?
  • Or are consumers likely to use on-demand (like Uber or Lyft) transportation services provided by a fleet of fully autonomous vehicles (shared AVs)?
  • How should the public sector respond?


Reports from a study conducted by TransForm and funded by both the City of Toronto and Metrolinx, with start-up funds from Centre for Urban Research and Land Development, are available:
