Autonomous mobility provider, Beep has partnered with the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) to deploy autonomous shuttles in Northern California.

This partnership marks Beep’s first West Coast deployment. It will see Beep’s electric autonomous shuttles launched at Bishop Ranch in San Ramon, which is the largest mixed-use business community in Northern California.

The shuttles will operate on a four-stop route connecting the San Ramon Transit Center, the City Center and corporate offices.

Beep CEO Joe Moye said:

Having the opportunity to work with a pioneering transportation authority like CCTA is both an honour and a natural partnership. Our expansion to the West Coast, with a forward-thinking organisation that truly understands the power of autonomous mobility testing, is a great step towards supporting public transit and addressing first and last-mile challenges in the state of California.

We are thrilled to be working with CCTA, and we look forward to providing a safe and efficient autonomous mobility experience to passengers at Bishop Ranch.

In 2018, CCTA became the first agency in California to obtain permission from the California Department of Motor Vehicles to deploy shared autonomous vehicles on public roads in the state.

Following the rollout at Bishop Ranch, Beep and CCTA will also deliver autonomous mobility services at an additional site early next year.

These projects will provide CCTA with insights for developing autonomous services that could underpin dynamic mobility networks on campuses, communities and city centers.

CCTA Board Chair Federal Glover said:

CCTA is proud of its leadership in autonomous mobility, and we are excited to partner with Beep for their very first project on the West Coast. Beep has shown significant leadership in the autonomous mobility space, which is reflected in successful projects with private communities, public transit authorities and the US National Park Service. I have no doubt this will be a successful collaboration that gives the public a chance to experience how autonomous shuttles can be integrated into our communities.
