About the Project (Renmark Aged Care Connect)

An exciting trial is being rolled out in Renmark with the arrival of the State’s first regional driverless bus. This project is funded by the South Australian Government (Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure) and supported by world leading autonomous vehicle technology company, EasyMile, SAGE Automation and Renmark Paringa Council. This trial is set to provide a service specifically focused on the mobility needs of the elderly and disability community, and in its second year, be operational in tourism.

But first we need a name! And an innovative design for the bus.
