Aveiro is a touristic city in Portugal.
The pilot is managed by Ubiwhere, The Municipality of Aveiro, and Instituto de Telecomunicações. The Institute of Mobility and Transport allows the shuttle to circulate on public roads as long as there is no traffic. Therefore, only pedestrians and bicycles can share the road with the AV.
Through the project, Aveiro aims at linking disadvantaged urban areas to public transport and develop shuttle services for vulnerable groups. The pilot plan is to develop a Tech City initiative linking railway station, city center, hospital and the University campus.
