COMTO Jacksonville continued its virtual conversation series in June. On Wednesday, June 16, 2021, the chapter hosted two exceptional leaders from JTA, Bernard Schmidt, Vice President of Automation and Michael Feldman, Director of the Ultimate Urban Circulator (U2C), who spoke about the JTA Autonomous Program/U2C. U2C is a multi-phased program aimed at converting and expanding the automated people mover (Skyway) into an autonomous vehicle (AV) network. They also shared vital information about the recently approved Local Option Gas Tax and what it did for the JTA and for the community.
Mr. Schmidt and Mr. Feldman has been leading the charge in exploring cutting edge technology in the transportation space. COMTO Jacksonville is very excited and look forward to the future deployment of autonomous vehicles in Jacksonville, Florida. You can learn more about U2C here.
