Scania and Nobina, the largest public transport operator in the Nordic countries, will collaborate to commence trials of autonomous buses on regular routes in the Stockholm area. The trials will be conducted in two stages, initially without passengers before welcoming commuters onboard. Safety being a top priority throughout the trials, the buses will have a safety-driver to monitor operations and assist passengers.

Henrik Dagnäs, MD Nobina Sweden, said “We at Nobina are highly engaged in establishing what we believe will be an important part of future public transport,” says. “These trials will provide a great deal of insight and experience going forward concerning the practical everyday aspects of managing and operating autonomous buses and enabling more people to travel by public transport. The demands on autonomous buses will not differ from those in other operations, including reliability, safety and availability.”
