Norway’s first driverless bus to Stavanger
A self-driving bus from French company Easymile is due to arrive in Stavanger this December.
Forus is Norway’s most important business area and the driving force within the Stavanger region. More than 1.2 million square metres of commercial properties are housing approximately 3,000 businesses and 40,000 employees, representing world-leading expertise in a vast number of areas.
There are currently huge and ongoing initiatives and plans for further developing Forus as the country’s leading business hub. One of these initiatives is to test a self-driving bus in the area. The bus, delivered by french company Easymile, can take up to 6 passengers and has a maximum speed of 40 km/h. The bus is due to arrive in Stavanger in December and could be in full swing by next summer if all permissions are given by local and national lawmakers.
