self-driving buses – The bus service will transport passengers between a car park outside Edinburgh and a train station in the city from 15 May

Five buses will run on the 22km route from May 15, connecting Feritol car park, in nearby Fife, with Edinburgh Park rail and tram station. The line will have a capacity of about 10,000 passenger trips per week. The buses have sensors that enable them to move along a pre-selected route at a speed of up to 80 km per hour.

However, two employees of the operator company will also travel in them. A driver will sit in the driver’s seat to monitor the equipment, and the so-called bus captain will assist passengers in boarding, purchasing tickets and enquiries.

According to the British government, it will be the world’s first public bus service served by self-driving standard-sized buses.
