Day 2 Agenda
TUMCREATE developed an autonomous electric vehicle concept, a microtransit vehicle with 30-passenger capacity, which can complement the bus transit system. This study shows that although the acquisition costs of the autonomous electric vehicles are higher than those of their conventional counterparts, they can reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) per passenger-km up to 75% and 60% compared to their conventional counterparts and the buses, respectively.
