Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties Weigh in on Connected & Automated Vehicles in Central Florida
MetroPlan Orlando hosted workshops across the region to gauge interest in connected and automated vehicles (CAV) and get opinions on how they will impact Central Florida's roads. A current study is evaluating the region’s readiness for CAVs, and public input is critical to moving forward.
Three workshops -- one each in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties -- attracted people who are interested in the CAV readiness study's findings. Attendees asked questions and offered opinions during the presentations. They also provided feedback via a survey.
MetroPlan Orlando has completed an evaluation of the region’s current capabilities in a technical memorandum and looked at best practices from other regions. Find Out More
