Vehicle Assist and Automation

Automated, predictable curb access enables transit buses to achieve rail-like quality of service and improve operational efficiencies through tighter scheduling. Vehicle Assist and Automation, or VAA, has been implemented onto Bus Rapid Transit, enabling buses to stop in fixed locations every time. Improved reliability and service make automatically guided buses a more attractive transit option for travelers of all types. The system is currently in field operational testing in Oregon and California.
