Where's the bus driver? Driverless buses get a test run in Montreal

Visitors to Montreal's Olympic Park could, in the near future, be shuttled around its attractions in a driverless, electric bus.

Two French companies, Transdev and Keolis Canada, have been testing driverless buses around the Olympic Stadium ahead of the World Summit on Public Transit taking place at the Palais des congrès starting Monday.

CBC's French-language service, Radio-Canada, gained early access to the new minibuses this week.

Keolis' Navya transports passengers on closed-circuit routes, especially at airports. Transdev's Easymile does the same in several cities, including in Paris, where its minibuses have been circulating since January 2017 on a reserved lane.
