About Us

First Transit Emerging Technologies

First Transit works with clients across North America to identify opportunities for shared autonomous vehicle (SAV) deployments that will benefit their ridership through expanded mobility options. In each of our SAV operations, we deliver innovative solutions with a focus on safety, performance, and customer satisfaction.

Our solution, and the flexibility and support of our team, provide the foundation for a scalable AV operation which can easily be expanded beyond the initial parameters of a pilot program, including:

  • Identifying, testing, and deploying the right technologies and vehicles 
  • Developing optimal operational scenarios
  • Integrating automated vehicle service into public transportation networks
  • Implementing private shuttle services in a variety of operational environments
  • Providing and developing AV-focused training, safety, and maintenance procedures


First Transit Automated Vehicle Experience

Since 2016, First Transit has paved the way for the transit industry in the Shared Autonomous Vehicle (SAV) space. Today, we are the leader in the SAV space; we have operated and led more initiatives, pilots, and projects than any of our competitors. Further, First Transit was the operating partner on the first SAV project tested in the United States. Our work in the SAV space is strengthened by 66 years of experience in the transportation industry.

The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
