Rungis: the Caisse des Dépôts group experiments a self-contained shuttle service on lane open to traffic

On 22 September Caisse des Dépôts, Icade and Transdev launched the experimentation of an autonomous electric shuttle service on Rungis business park. EasyMile shuttles will provide the 18,000 employees from the 220 companies in the park with a complementary transport solution to the company's restaurant.


An experimentation on lanes open to traffic

The experiment will take place until the end of 2017 at Parc Icade d’Orly-Rungis. Travelling at lunchtime, two autonomous shuttles each with a 12-person capacity will undertake a 1.25km journey between the stations of the park and the company restaurant. The users will be able to rely on the Transdev Autonome application, to find out the wait time at stops and vehicles' positions in real time.


A free additional service for the tenants of Icade parks

This innovative method of transport is part of the Coach Your Growth service offer, designed for the community of rental company employees from Icade Parks, who are increasingly joining the sharing groups which are formed according to affinities on the digital platform (catering, sport, professional clubs, car sharing, etc.).


An important stage for Transdev in its autonomous vehicle development policy

Issy-les-Moulineaux, Saclay, Rouen…Transdev is rolling out increasing experiments aiming to accelerate the development of mobility services with driverless vehicles. Offered on an experimental basis, these new shuttles will allow it to collect the experience of users, analyse the acceptability of this innovative method of transport and identify the possible improvements to apply.


Achievement of the Caisse des Dépôts group's commitment in favour of the smart city

This experiment is one of the projects from eight territorial pilot smart cities launched in 2016 by the Caisse des Dépôts group. Undertaken in partnership with the local authorities and private stakeholders, large groups and start-ups, this approach aims to explore and progress the economic models, the new services and the breakthrough technologies which will allow the territories to face the challenges of tomorrow.
