Autobus Sans Conducteur.
Introduction of driverless buses in the Charente.
The department has announced that it will be one of the first regions in France to introduce the all new driverless bus. This bus has already been trailed in Madrid with great success.This all eclectic bus (ASC) Autobus Sans Conducteur will start running from the 1 st April 2021.
This will be the first step towards a driverless transport system, which has already seen the introduction of driverless trains on the Paris Metro system in 2020. The first route has already been agreed and the new driverless bus will travel between Villebois Lavalette and the newly built library in Angouleme, which will also serve access to Angouleme station via the new footbridge.
The new bus will be able to navigate all road types without human intervention. Trials have already taken place in secret. “You may have already travelled on a driverless bus without realising”, said a spokesperson from the ACS. The spokesperson went on to say that “many journeys have taken place with qualified drivers sitting in the driver’s seat so as to not worry the passengers.” “Some of the drivers have been seen falling asleep out of boredom creating panic among the passengers.” The driverless buses have already navigated 120,000 kilometres without a single accident. However, one bus did get a speeding ticket for exceeding 30 km in a 30 kilometre zone. The investigating team are looking at how this could have happened. After all, how do you apply the points to Permis de conduire to a driverless bus?
Other cities such as“ London, Paris, Munich, New York everybody talk about mm! pop music; talk about mm! pop music” will also be implementing driverless buses in late 2023
The unions are up in arms. Many of the drivers fear that they will lose their jobs. The management have agreed that they will be able to keep their status as drivers for three years but they will have to adopt a new role of opening and closing the doors. (But don’t tell the ASLEF union in the UK because our sources tell us that they are soon to be introducing driverless trains as well.) Whatever next.
Next we will be leaving the EU…Surely not!
