Be the first to experience this exciting and emerging technology being piloted at the Navy Yard with the official start of the Navy Yard autonomous vehicle (AV) shuttle service. Beginning at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 27, the Navy Yard AV Shuttle will begin taking passengers around the Navy Yard campus.

Navy Yard AV Shuttle Background

The arrival of the electric, zero-emissions shuttle comes after much planning, testing, and coordination between public and private organizations – PIDC, AECOM, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, Drexel University, PennDOT, and Perrone Robotics.

The Navy Yard AV Shuttle is another example of the Navy Yard’s commitment to long-term sustainability and resiliency by helping reduce the use of single-occupancy vehicles, lessen congestion, and decrease carbon emissions on a campus home to 150 businesses and 15,000 employees.

The AV shuttle is the world’s first automated Buy America, FMVSS, and ADA-compliant transit van, which utilizes Perrone’s TONY (To Navigate You) technology that converts the shuttle to fully automated capabilities for operations in the Navy Yard. The shuttle can seat nine passengers plus a wheelchair, aside from the operator. The wheelchair ramp feature will be accessible from a standard roadside curb.

AV Shuttle Operations: Schedule & Stops

Beginning Tuesday, February 27, AV Shuttle services will run Monday – Friday, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
