The city of Peoria will be hosting an event to celebrate the launch of RoboRide Medical at Freedom Plaza Courtyard, 7:30 a.m., Nov. 15

Dignitaries and officials from the city, Beep and Maricopa Association of Governments will be in attendance.

The fully electric, driverless shuttle will operate from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday in the healthcare district near Plaza Del Rio Boulevard. RoboRide Medical, which has no steering wheel or pedals, will use a pre-programmed, fixed route with a combination of localization techniques, involving high-powered censors and cameras.

It is open to the public without an appointment, fee or pre-screening.

Additionally, the shuttle is ADA accessible and has an attendant onboard at all times to ensure riders have a pleasant and safe experience. RoboRide Medical holds up to eight passengers at a time and will operate at a maximum speed of 15 mph as part of the pilot program. For more information, visit www.peoriaaz.gov/transit.
