Transdev has teamed up with autonomous vehicle manufacturer EasyMile and network technology partner Telstra to present the 2017/18 Australasian Driverless Roadtrip.


We're taking the future of transport on tour

The roadtrip will feature public demonstrations of EasyMile’s EZ10 fully autonomous driverless shuttle in select capital cities and regional centres in late 2017 and early 2018.

The tour will give people across Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to experience the future of transport first-hand, and get an introduction to the benefits of self-driving shuttle technology and its many applications.

Our destinations – you’re invited to ride in a driverless shuttle

The EZ10 is a functioning example of what the future of mobility for end users looks like, combining the benefits and flexibility of the technology, with the economy of group transportation.

The public is invited to hitch a ride in the self-driving, fully autonomous shuttle when the Australasian Driverless Roadtrip visits:

  • Adelaide from 15 November to 18 November 
  • Canberra from 24 to 26 November
  • Cairns from 4 to 8 December
  • Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast from 14 to 16 December.

In 2018, public demonstrations are planned for Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington.
