Automatic for the people? Issues and options for transport authorities on connected and autonomous vehicles

March, 2020

This report aims to provide an objective framework for city regions to think about connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and the approaches they might take to them.

It looks at CAVs from the perspective of city region transport authorities in the context of their wider objectives and responsibilities; it recognises that vehicles are becoming increasingly connected and autonomous; and that the range of connected and autonomous vehicles goes beyond just cars to include buses and public service vehicles. It also analyses the safety, economic, social and environmental considerations of CAVs.

The report presents options for how transport authorities may respond to CAVs, and recommends the actions national Government should take to enable them to do so.
