We want to reassure you that, we’re still running our revised services and we are continuing to take our lead from the latest government guidelines. For those with an essential need to travel, there are some things we can all do to help keep everyone safe, including practising social distancing by sitting on your own wherever possible, using contactless payment if you can and taking your newspaper home with you.

CAV Forth - the UK's first autonomous bus service


What is Project CAV Forth?

CAV Forth is a collaborative project part funded by the UK Governments' Centre for the Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV). 

A consortium of UK partners are in the process of designing and developing a fleet of full size autonomous buses that will service a new Stagecoach operated route running from Ferrytoll P&R in Fife, across the Forth Road Bridge into Edinburgh Park's transport interchange. 

The project has emerged from an existing partnership between Fusion Processing, Alexander Dennis Ltd and Stagecoach which has already automated a full size bus able to drive itself around our Sharston depot in Manchester.  Other partners include Napier University, Bristol Robotics Lab and Transport Scotland.

 

Co-designed with public, staff and stakeholders!


CAV Forth aims to bring this ground breaking technology closer by proving its capabilities in a real world environment, completely open to the public as a registered Stagecoach service.

Building trust in this new technology, understanding how the experience as a passenger might change, and why anyone should care are all key questions which we have been exploring together with people in and around the local community.
