Autonomous shuttle demonstration on Midtown Greenway rescheduled

Due to the recent spring snowstorm, Hennepin County’s autonomous shuttle demonstration on a two-block stretch of the Midtown Greenway, originally planned for this weekend, has been rescheduled for next weekend, April 27 to 29.

This weekend, snowbanks along the demonstration route would have limited what the county and our partners were able to learn, as well as community participation.

Collecting feedback from shuttle riders and trail users is an important part of the demonstration. With warmer weather in the forecast next weekend, we hope many residents will join us to experience this new technology.
