First autonomous vehicle trials in the UK to be hosted at Milton Park

Published on: 26/02/2018

We are delighted to able to tell you that the bid Innovate UK was successful and £2.5 million has been awarded to trial autonomous shuttle vehicles at and  around Milton Park.

Milton Park is a partner in the project along with First Group, Arrival, Zipabout, Nova Modus, University of the West of England and South and Vale and Oxfordshire County Council. 

The project’s vision is to establish a truly multi-modal Mobility as a Service (MaaS) offer, for the first time using a range of autonomous electric vehicles, seamlessly integrated into an end-to-end MaaS system. 

This project builds on the work carried out by the Milton Park Travel Forum to future-proof the Milton Park transport offer and provide greener, more sustainable travel options for everyone.  We are grateful for everyone’s support so far in taking up and promoting sustainable travel which has been instrumental in helping the project partners win this funding. 

An official press announcement was released on Sunday 25th February. To read in full, please click here

Please join us in celebrating this great news and we hope you will be as excited as we are to see this project come to fruition and to be amongst the first in the world to travel in self-driving shuttle vehicles!
